The Tender Tendrils Scarf is easy to crochet, uses only 1 or 2 skeins of yarn, and has been one of my most popular designs. There are 2 versions of the scarf plus 11 variations in the pattern. Great for gifts, too!
My favorite stitch, Linen Stitch: Works on an even number of stitches. Row 1: *Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front. Repeat from * across, ending with a knit 1. Row 2: *Purl 1, slip 1 with yarn in back. Repeat from * across, ending with a purl 1. Repeat these two rows for pattern.
