Easy Puffy Scarf

By sewcrochet4fun

This scarf is very versatile as it can be made in almost any yarn and with almost any hook to get your desired look. Expand/widen the width and you end up with a stole or shawl!! Expand the width and shorten the length, use rug yarn, and you get an area rug....have fun with this!!

I like that in all the different yarns you used! Looks so cozy in the first and lighter in the last - very versatile, thanks!
