So, knowing me, I had to make one from scratch -- no "pre-fab" yarn for me!!!
This little project ended up being a several month long project, and now several scarves later, I'm done -- yippee!!!
The "pre-fab" yarn is not really yarn. It is actually machine woven or machine crocheted with thread. For me, working with crochet thread is more difficult than yarn. Sooo, with this in mind the first spiral, twirly scarves I made were with yarn. I like how they turned out.
These yarn scarves are great for cooler times of the year, but for summer I needed to tackle crochet thread for a lighter, airy look.
The next scarves were made with size 3 crochet thread (so many more stitches, because of using thread instead of yarn!).
These scarves took a lot longer to crochet than the yarn scarves.
But so worth it because these scarves are fabulous! Once you get started the thread is easy to work with and you will truly enjoy making these crochet thread scarves.
This yellow/orange scarf (below) took an especially long time because I threaded small clear beads onto the thread and the crocheted them into the scarf.
This is the post I was hoping to get done a couple of weeks before Mother's Day, for a Mother's Day gift idea --- oh well. At least it is done in time to make some fun summery accent scarves for yourself!
I want to thank my youngest daughter (#5) for modeling the scarves for me. And I want to thank my oldest daughter (#1) for doing the photography.
Here are the "how to" videos that will show you every step of the way to create the trendy scarves:
The video above is for the crochet thread type scarf.

Happy crocheting :)
