Color Blocked Co-Ed Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Underground CrafterWhen it comes to scarves, I have to confess that I’m pretty boring as a stylist.

This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Lion Brand.

If you happen to run into me in the street on a chilly day, most likely you’ll see my scarf just wrapped around my neck a few times. But, for the blog, I try to hold myself to a higher standard. I mean, don’t I have some responsibility for showing my scarves in a more interesting way when presenting them to you?

Since this scarf was designed to meet the donation requirements of Foster Care to Success’s Red Scarf Project, a program that distributes handmade scarves to college students who have aged out of foster care, I figured I’d really have to up my style game. After all, in New York City at least, college students are often on the cutting edge of fashion. A simple wrap around won’t do for them.

So before I took these pictures, I visited my favorite styling resources. For this scarf, I tried The Autumn from Scarves.com (at left) and The Slip Knot from Scarves.net (at right).
