Winter is coming, it is fall now but the snow will be flying soon. Christmas is on it's way too so it's time to get started on all of those Christmas crochet projects many of us have been putting off, procrastinating, then working in a frenzy to finish gifts before we give them to their respectful recipient. A friend asked me if I knew of any good free scarf patterns, I decided to create a post with some of the cutest free crochet scarf patterns for women that I have been able to find on the internet. Crochet scarfs make an excellent gift and in the grand scheme of crochet, they really don't take a lot of time to complete. Where as a crochet artist could spend months putting an afghan together as a gift for someone speacial, a crochet scarf typically takes only an afternoon or two to complete. All of these crochet patterns are completely available for free at the time of creating this post.
