Persephone Scarf and the 2016 Crochet Scarf Drive

I present to you the Persephone Scarf, my contribution to the Crochet Scarf Drive #CrochetCharityDrive

What is the Crochet Scarf Drive and how did it get started?

18 designers bringing 18 brand new patterns, so you can make them and donate them to give someone a little handmade love and comfort! There is no designated donation place, you donate to the place(s) of your choosing.

In the Fall of 2015, Sonya over at Blackstone Designs started a Crochet Mitten Drive where 15 designers came together to make 15 brand new patterns, so that we could donate mittens to those in need. It was a huge success and inspired her to do more!

I'm excited to post the next free scarf pattern in this Crochet Charity Drive event! At the end of this pattern you will find a list of the other bloggers and when you can get their pattern.

If you're finding this pattern outside of the event, but would like to join in on the fun, click HERE!

And NOW for the Persephone Scarf pattern:

  1. Lovely pattern. There is an error in row 5. Should read*sc in next TWO sts, TWO scs in next st*

  2. Can anyone help with row 4, I cannot figure out what I should be doing! I get 16 clusters... not sure what I should be doing?
