Summer Scarves

Summer Scarves are great. I've lost count of the number of scarves I've crocheted during this spring season. This scarf uses Sirdar's "Baby Bamboo" DK. This was a fun yarn to work with, has a wonderfully soft feel, and displays stitch texture brilliantly.

The scarf pictured below uses Aslan Trends "Class" sport-weight--a rayon/cotton blend.

I recently started working with "Panda Soy" from Crystal Palace Yarns, using wattle stitch. This yarn is delicious, a trait this is only enhanced by the name of this color: fudge brownie. Initially I wasn't sure this stitch would work for a scarf, but this yarn seems to be working up nicely with the wattle stitch. I will likely finish the side edges with either single stitch or slip stitch after it reaches a suitable length.
