A Light Weight Crochet Beanie Made with Scarfie Yarn
One of my favorite things about Scarfie yarn is that it is so light and lofty. I especially love using it in crochet patterns like this Candied Ginger Beanie because it creates a light weight piece that still packs all the warmth you need for winter.
