Cozy Pocket Scarf Crochet Pattern
It can be hard to be prepared for winter. There’s so much to remember, and usually, something slips through the cracks. With the Cozy Pocket Scarf, I have one less thing to remember.
What makes this scarf different from any other I have, are the little pockets on each end of the scarf. It’s perfect for warming your hands up on the days you forget your gloves.
The scarf also uses some beautiful decorative stitches. The base of the scarf is worked in the daisy stitch, while the pockets are created using the ribbed stitch. The texture is unique and cozy.
And the yarn really lends itself to the stitch details. It’s made using an acrylic wool blend. The Plymouth Encore Worsted Yarn is soft and durable and comes in beautiful spun colors. I made my scarf in a soft grey ombré.
