Crochet Project: Ladder Scarf

The second crocheted scarf project I completed this week is one for which I made up my own simple pattern design, just to use up some more leftover yarn from a project I made last year. I used a size N/M (9.0mm) hook, a bit less than one skein of Lion Brand Homespun in "Fiesta" and an alternating stitch pattern of 2 double crochets and 2 chains (with a base chain of 18 stitches).
scarf with a square stitch design made with a fuzzy yarn in muted tones of gold, maroon and teal blue. Close-up of scarf stitching to show off the mixed colors of the yarn.

This was another quick, easy project that resulted in a soft warm scarf with a ladder-like stitch design. The scarf of muted primary colors measures about 5 inches wide by 60 inches long.
