– I used 2 skeins of Ice Yarn Universe Dark Beige (19% Wool, 11% Acrylic, 70% Polyamide, 100g = 251yd/230m)

About the yarn
This was my first time working with Ice Yarn Universe.
4 Medium: Worsted weight yarn, 19% Wool, 11% Acrylic, 70% Polyamide.
It has a shiny and metallic look. But so soft and little bit fuzzy and drapes well. I used a larger hook size to make the scarf more draping. Check out more colorways of this yarn on Ice Yarn Website. This yarn is great for making shawl, cowl and more.

  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch
  • sk = skip
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • ch-sp = chain space
  • * to ; = repeat * to the instructions.

Special stitch:
shell st = (2hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc) in indicated st.

– I used a larger hook instead of the recommended hook size for the yarn weight to make scarf to make it more drape.
– This scarf can be adjusted to any size by crocheting multiple of 4 chains. And repeating rows as much as you want.
