Scarf Challenge 21

Updated: Feb 20

I had some Red Heart Comfort left over from another project. Scarves are always a good way to use up that left over yarn, and the scarves are easy to donate. This isn't my favorite yarn, it's a bit rough. It is nice to work with though, no splitting. If you are looking for a more affordable yarn for projects you donate, this is a good option.


You can find the pattern below or if you would like to support me and my crochet habit, the pattern can be purchased on Ravelry for $2 :)
