I created this scarf for my daughter. When we started to take photos of her wearing the scarf she wanted to take the photos with our horses. She has been drawn to animals for her entire life. When she was small she mailed her allowance, cash and change, to the humane societies for cats, dogs and horses. I named the scarf Kindred Spirits because she truly has a spiritual relationship with animals.

The Kindred Spirits scarf is crocheted from tip to tip and increases slowly up to a center point and then back down. It’s an easy repetitive row sequence in the increase section and in the decrease section. Each row increases by 1 stitch in the Increase Section and decreases by 1 stitch in the Decrease Section. Once you work through several row repeats you will see that the pattern is easy to memorize. The gentle increase and decrease of the angle in this scarf makes a wide scarf without a lot of depth. This allows for maximum wrapping and tying, and with the long ends the scarf will stay in place. The angled side of the scarf has a neat and tidy picot edging that is crocheted at the end of every other row. When the scarf is finished it’s finished! No need to add additional edging rows to the scarf.
