It’s super cold here today, the coldest day of the year so far by a long shot. It has been snowing in all kinds of places across the country (places where it doesn’t usually snow!), fortunately we are all cosy inside with the fire going.

You will remember the rainbow fingerless mitts I made a little while ago for Maia? Well after much pestering here is a crochet rainbow scarf to match.  I really love this colour combination, so bright on these cold winter days, and perfect for wrapping around a little neck to keep out the chill!

 

Very easy crochet rainbow scarf pattern.

Matching your stripes to you additional tassels, lay the additional pieces of yarn over your tassels and tie together.

Cut the tassels so they are all the same length (obviously you don’t really need a photo to show you how to do this, but here is one anyway…)
