Raspberry Frappe Scarflet

Best Blog Tips

This is a lovely yet simple scarflet. Very easy to make (I made it in two sittings!) It has pretty lace inserts yet it is not so dainty that it cannot be worn casually. It is so easy that an advanced beginner can tackle it and it would be a breeze for an experienced crocheter. This is the kind of scarflet that can be easily made in quantity for gifts or for charity!
