Yarn 

I used a cotton silk yarn from King Cole – Finesse Cotton Silk DK. Available in 10 fashionable vintage shades from King Cole. It is 77% Cotton, 23% Silk and is perfect for accessories. You can get the yarn in so many colors, so you will have plenty to choose from! Find your local stockists here

The Skinny Crochet Scarf is made using 2 colours and a 4.5 mm hook. I added a small amount of cream yarn from my stash for the final row. I love the addition of the cream lace, it gives a touch of elegance and nostalgia to the finished scarf! I used some Scheepjes Stonewashed yarn in cream for the final edge, but you could use any DK weight yarn you have to hand.
