I got the idea for this adorable Moose Scarf after creating the Crochet Moose Hat a few weeks ago! I love the way plaid looks with the cute moose face! It’s actually easy to crochet a plaid (buffalo check) pattern. You need Black and Red yarn and then a darker (maroon) red. These shades I used of Bernat Super Value are perfect! I am using Berry Red, Black, and Redwood Heather for the plaid part of the scarf. You can find these colors HERE on yarnspirations.com. I have a video tutorial to show you how I crochet the plaid and carry my yarn. I also have a video tutorial for the antlers!
-Bernat Super Value
For the Plaid:
For the Moose:
Topaz (medium beige for the main part of the moose)
