That time of year is right around the corner! Frosty weather, snow days and hot cocoa, yummy. I created this Linden scarf in anticipation of some colder days and nights. This scarf is designed to be warm, cozy and simple to make. The oversized extra long feature allows for versatility and style. If you are looking for more color options, Paintbox offers a huge variety of color choices for their yarns and the prices are amazing. If you don’t want your scarf this long, simply make a smaller chain (even-numbered) and complete the pattern as written. Now let’s get to it.
