Hey Guy's!

Years ago, when I first decided I wanted to start designer crochet patterns I designed the Melody scarf. This pattern has gone my entire journey as a designer, the good, bad, highs and lows. Going through a MAJOR amount of editing and altering, I've modified the template for this design multiple times. 

But good news folks, it's finally perfect.

The style of this scarf was inspired by two of my favorite trends; lightweight and bohemian. I used a mix of double and triple crochet to create a lovely mesh stitch. The Melody Scarf is perfect for all seasons and goes with so many outfits! I just had to use my favorite yarn for this project as well...

Caron Simply Soft

Yes, I'm sorry! Once again, I'll be talking to you all about this yarn. But the amount of colors Caron Simply Soft comes in, it's hard to dislike it. For real, I LOVE it. So it's safe to say I totally recommend this yarn for this scarf. 

Ok, Let's get into the Pattern!

- Chain 5 and Chain 6 count as a stitch.
