The front post cables interspersed with front post stitches resemble vines and twigs running up this scarf. The pattern is a simple 2 row repeat, allowing you plenty of time to perfect your post stitches and crochet cables. The color changes in the Wisdom Yarns Poems Chunky creates the stripes without a lot of ends to weave in. This scarf coordinates with patterns for hats for the whole family: the Vines and Twigs Slouch Hat and the Vines and Twigs Beanie.
The yarn used in this pattern was provided by Universal Yarn.
