Working a scarf from side to side has one big perk: it’s finished in just a few rows. (Of course, you still have to crochet the same amount, but at least you don’t have to keep turning.) Warm and fuzzy with a double row of eyelets running down the center, the Vino Scarf is a nice, quick way to keep warm.
