Sherbet Dreams Scarf

Sherbet Dreams Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

A friend of my hubby said "Can you make me a scarf? I just want something bright." So I started browsing my yarn stash and looking around for patterns. I kinda get overwhelmed with possibilities sometimes but then I found the perfect yarn! My usually favorite of Tweed Stripes!! It was perfect! Now to work my magic! Here is what I came up with! I love that way it came out! 

It's bright, warm, squishy and perfect to add some color to those winter hues!! 
Plus it makes a great last minute gift! Just takes a few hrs of time!!

This is simply lovely Calleigh! Thank you so much for the colors you chose. I think this has to move up to the head of my "to-do" list, as my daughter would love one under the tree this Christmas! :) Take care ~~
