My granddaughter and I went shopping the other day at the local arts and crafts stores. I couldn’t leave the store without looking through the new yarn and touching all of it. We found Red Heart® roll with it TWEED and fell in love with it. It is colorful yarn and I thought it would look great in a Crochet Moss Stitch Scarf. The moss stitch is perfect for showing off the color patterns in variegated yarn.
My granddaughter immediately listed all of the crochet wear she wanted me to make her (and right away). I asked her to pick out a skein of yarn for a scarf. She picked out two skeins: one in stormy blues and the other in party mix. I picked up enough yarn to make a matching hat and mittens, too. This Crochet Moss Stitch Scarf is an easy and quick weekend project. Above all, the moss stitch creates perfectly straight edges, too, so the scarf looks neat and blocked.
