I made this sparkle scarf for my Mother in law for a mothers day present. It's warm. soft and cosy and with the added sparkle it's glamorous too! Make it in any double knit yarn, Sirdar Snuggly Pearls dk or Peter Pan Moondust dk would work well, in your favourite colour, and of course it doesn't have to be sparkly, but it's nice to have a little bit of bling!
Gauge isn't that important here, if you want to make a wider scarf just do a longer starting chain (multiples of 3 plus 1) and carry on to whatever length you desire (although you may need to purchase more yarn than stated). It's a very easy pattern so is suitable for beginners who have a basic crochet stitch knowledge, and if you work in US terminology when I say tr do a dc and when I say dc do a sc!!!
