Spring Scarf - Free Pattern



This is the first of several patterns I will be publishing to support the handmade especially (handmadeespecially.org) charity that distributes comfort scarves to abused women who enter women's shelters across southern California. If you enjoyed this pattern, please make an extra scarf to donate to the cause. The address for donations can be found on their site. You can also donate to my personal scarf making efforts by purchasing my PDF pattern document, where 100% of your donation goes to make scarves to donate in my southern California area. Each donation pays for one scarf.

Materials:
Size J hook
SOFT worsted or light worsted weight yarn

Gauge:
Initial chain should measure no more than 5.5 inches or the scarf will be too wide. Change your hook size to ensure proper size is met.
