This is a great one for the girls or guys in your life – it’s a simple, chunky scarf with two colours of yarn used together on a larger crochet hook. You could use two complementary colours, or opposites, or colours that clash. Or if you really wanted to, you could use two strands of the same colour for a single colour block scarf. For a touch of glamour, use a soft, fluffy yarn, or one that has a metallic thread through it. If you don’t fancy the loop fringe, you can add a traditional tassel fringe, or leave it without a fringe at all.
