Students will learn how to create this elegant and warm "Pomp-a-Doodle" scarf with just the simple single crochet stitch. Designed by Darla Sims, Coats and Clark has generously provided kits with the original design pattern as well as two hooks, and a yarn needle. You'll be in "good hands" with Gwen and go home with your scarf almost done!
