This scarf is the result of experimenting with different combinations of stitches to create a cozy and warm scarf that is squishy and full of texture. I used Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn in Taupe and Barley. I started with full skeins and used approximately 1/3 of the Barley and less than 1/3 of the Taupe to make the scarf.
6″ wide / 72 in” long, optional tassels are 6.5″ long
4″ = 14 hdc stitches
4″ = 9 rows hdc
500-700 yds of worsted #4 weight yarn in 2 colors (250-350 yds for each color)
5.5mm crochet hook
Abbreviations (US Terms):

This pattern uses the half double crochet in the third loop only. If you are not familiar with this stitch, this video provides a really good explanation.
