I’m Marie Segares from Underground Crafter and scarves are some of my favorite crochet projects to make, wear, and give. When I first heard about the Super Scarf phenomenon, I knew I had to make one! After all, not only are Super Scarves luxuriously long and super cozy, they definitely make a statement!
For my Super Scarf, I was inspired by the redwood, a species of super tall and long-lived trees that thrive in the Northern Coast of California. Like its namesake tree, this scarf is ultra long and it will definitely be noticed! Make one for yourself or as a gift and get ready for cold weather ahead!
This luxuriously long Super Scarf has a gentle, unisex texture. The simple stitch pattern is beginner-friendly.
