Designed by Valerie Baber of Valerie Baber Designs just for you to warm your day with a classic style. Easy to make crocheted scarf that can be worn in various ways. Made with a fingerling/sock weight yarn to keep you warm and cozy in the colder days. The Classic Crochet Ribbed Scarf is one you will wear for years to come.

The Classic Crochet Ribbed scarf is perfect for everyone and can be made with various colours as shown including gradient yarns, variegated yarns or solid colours. If using mini skeins or small balls of yarn, choose the colours you are going to use and number them in the order you want them to flow beginning on the outside edge working to the other side. A classic crochet scarf that can be made for woman, men, teens and children (I would make it shorter for children).
