TexturedScarf2016

This was made using a chart.  Even though it is a knit/purl mix, it does roll into a tube scarf.  Double crochet on the edges (for US; UK= treble crochet) with hook I.  The main thing to remember when adding crochet to knitting is to save space between stitches so your crochet doesn’t end up too baggy and bunch up.
