It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I’m about due for a red scarf. I found a gorgeous red cranberry in Vanna’s Choice® yarn. It’s the perfect color for Valentine’s Day. The texture of the Crochet Sweetheart Scarf is shaped by working three basic crochet stitches — single, half double, and double crochet — in a single crochet stitch, skipping the next two stitches, then repeating the pattern. I used two skeins of yarn, but you can increase the length of the scarf by adding a third skein. The vibrant color of this scarf also makes for a great Christmas gift.
