The weather recently has been very cold and misty in the mornings and  I have been so glad to have had a nice cosy scarf on, to keep the frosty air out.  So I thought it would be a good time to do another crochet roundup.  We all need a nice snuggly scarf to keep us warm at this time of year and I have found some wonderful patterns to share with you. My first choice is by Amanda at Loops And Love Crochet.  She uses Caron Cakes yarn to create this lovely colour block effect.  The two ends of the scarf are sewn together, turning one long strip into an infinity scarf.  This is a fantastic pattern for newbie crocheters, especially as the yarn does all the work for you.   Criss Cross Stitch Infinity Scarf This would be a great scarf to make for that man in your life.  I love the mustard and grey combination used here and the interesting texture.  You can find the pattern at Crochet Cloudberry.
