crochet love { handkerchief scarf pattern }



I thought it was about time I share a new FREE crochet pattern. It's been a while!

This one literally took me 30 minutes (or less?) to work up,

so you should have no problems making one for yourself and all your friends!

Wouldn't this make a great handmade Christmas gift?




I tried to mimick the style of the 1960's silk scarves that I love so much.

I wanted it to look like a handkerchief tied around the neck, except crochet style.

The great thing about this pattern is that you don't need any extra buttons, clasps, or anything!

The scarf slides over itself and holds in place really well.
