Forest hideout scarf

The Forest hideout scarf is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern. It creates a lovely drape when compared to the more basic stitches, but is still relatively simple. It works out especially pretty when using multiple colors or gradient yarn (as pictured). I chose its name because the colors remind me of the woods and open air. The texture makes this scarf a very comfortable project to work on.
