The crochet Feather & Fan Scarf is a cozy color-block scarf that is perfect for Autumn and Winter. You’ll simply love how quickly this project will fly off your hook!
This scarf is a great introduction to open, lace stitches since you’ll be crocheting the feather and fan lace stitch with Aran weight yarn. So, stitches are easy to see, which is a big plus if you’re new to crochet lace.
Moreover, as an extra motivation for beginners or sellers who are crushed on time, crocheting the entire scarf will take no longer than just a couple of nights from start to finish!
One of the most challenging parts of this project might actually be choosing your color combo.
I picked four balls of Aran weight yarn that I had in my stash, but you could also go for a little stash-busting and use five or more yarn colors, or simply use a solid tone.
