How to crochet an easy cozy scarf that features an easy half double crochet stitch and front and back post stitches.

Post stitches creates a fun ridge texture and cozy fabric. The scarf looks great in a solid color, or in color blocks as I’ve done.

This is a two row repeat making it a great project for when you’re binge watching your favorite show. This an an easy scarf pattern comprised of simple half double crochets and a variation of double crochets for worked into the posts. With four sizes included, you can make one for each member of the family!
