A Crochet Bandana Scarf that is Easy to Customize
I LOVE the look of the twisted fringe that has been trending lately. So much that I even made a video tutorial for you to learn how to make it (spoiler alert: it’s not difficult but a little bit time consuming).
This scarf is a triangular cowl shape, but if that’s not your jam it is easily customizable! This pattern only used a partial skein of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. If you want to make a more classic scarf just use the whole skein and skip the joining. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Yarn Substitutes for Scarfie Yarn
Ever since I started Seven Days of Scarfie, I’ve been asked a lot about yarn that can be substituted when Scarfie isn’t available or wool is an issue. The good news is that you can substitute almost any worsted weight yarn or light Category 5 yarn for this pattern! Since scarves aren’t particularly fitted you don’t even need to worry about gauge. Just add or subtract length as desired if your yarn is a different weight category. If you are looking for yarn similar to Lion Brand Scarfie yarn, check out my list of recommended substitutes here.
