Queen Anne Crochet Scarf

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Tammy’s Queen Anne Scarf is the perfect project if you are stuck in doors (Like me! Thanks, snow!) with a limited amount of yarn… say.. one ball of Boku?

One ball of Boku makes the scarf in Color 10

The pattern is by Khebin Gibbons and can be found on his blog

You can work this pattern with a variety of different weights of yarn, there really is no limit. I think it would be very romantic in a mohair like Drifting Gardens (which self stripes just like Boku!)
