I found the grid lace pattern so interesting to work on that I tried a third version of the scarf as well. This version features two different colors alternating in a lacy striped pattern. For the sample you see pictured, I chose to use red and green yarns; I think they are "Christmas-y," although the color names are "autumn red" and "dark sage." This design could easily be worn in fall and throughout the winter holiday season. If you'd like to crochet scarves as Christmas gifts, this pattern is a good one to consider.

I can't tell you how many hours I've spent daydreaming about what Joseph's coat of many colors might have looked like. I'd love to crochet a coat of many colors someday, but in the meanwhile I keep coming up with smaller projects inspired by the "many colors" theme.

- There's a free color chart too. I've created two slightly different variations of the chart, because it will be easier for left-handed crocheters to work from a reversed version. If you're left-handed, you'll want to grab this version of the chart.

This scarf was designed in long rows of subtle stripes. While the stripes add visual interest, they aren't the first thing you notice; it's the eyelash yarn that catches your eye.
My sample scarf was crocheted using a combination of Caron Simply Soft along with Lion Brand's Fun Fur eyelash yarn. You can feel free to substitute any comparable yarns if you like.
I've posted an image gallery with more scarf photos, in case you'd like to get a better idea of how this scarf looks.
