Shades of Autumn

So it's officially Autumn. Despite the sunny bright days, the nights are chilly and the leaves are starting to fall... all the inspiration I needed to create this scarf.

I followed a free pattern by Crochet In Color.

I used Sirdar Cotton DK yarn in autumnal colours and a 5mm hook and did 17 rows in total.

Instead of braiding my ends, I added a fringe. Here's a great tutorial showing how this is done.

Love the colours in this scarf. I used the same yarn (different colours) for my bag. It is so lovely to work with.
