Free Crochet Pattern – Swizzle Alpaca Ribbed Scarf

I use this pattern by Prague Loop over and over.  This scarf was made with our 100% Alpaca Swizzle Yarn, which has been discontinued since I first wrote this post.  Any DK or worsted weight yarn would work with this pattern, and it took just one skein of yarn for a scarf that measured 60″ long  by  5.5″ wide.  Take a look at our Astral Yarn, our Paca Paints Yarn, our Classic Alpaca Yarn, and our Espiral Yarn.  All would work wonderfully with this pattern.  The scarf is worked lengthwise, back and forth in rows, and gauge is not important.   Super easy one row scarf, very suitable for beginners.
