Looped Border Double Crochet Scarf

The Looped Border Double Crochet Scarf is simple to make and easy enough for the beginner crocheter, and the final product looks stunning!  I've made several of these crocheted scarves in a variety of yarns and they can be found at my Knots-n-Knits Online Store.  These two scarves were crocheted using Red Heart's Soft yarn in Plummy and Waterscape.  I absolutely love these color combinations!  The yarn is nice because it is silky soft and the subtle palette of colors blend so nicely. 

This crochet pattern is from Red Heart and I modified it slightly from the original pattern by using only one strand instead of two and making my crocheted scarves 4 inches wide instead of two.  For a scarf that is 4 inches wide and about 45 inches long, you will need 2 balls of Red Heart Soft yarn.  These skeins tend to be smaller than similar soft yarns, so two are needed as opposed to just one if you use Caron's Simply Soft yarn or regular Red Heart yarn.
