Since it uses two basic crochet stitches this scarf is perfect for beginner crocheters and one that I consider quite easy to learn.

Coboo yarn is a lightweight 3 yarn that is 51% cotton and 49% rayon. It is silky to work with and has beautiful drape which means your scarf will look and feel amazing!
Coboo comes in a variety of colors that are all quite beautiful. For this scarf I decided to use the color Pale Pink but if you’d prefer a different color take a look at the gorgeous colors that Lion Brand offers in this fiber.
