Whenever I go yarn shopping, I traditionally gravitate towards color. I love to play around with textures and color to create something that is a little different. The Foxtrot Crochet Scarf incorporates both texture and color to create a look that is both cozy and stylish.

I was in Hobby Lobby the other day and came across a new intriguing yarn called Yarn Bee Arabella. It is a #5 bulky weight yarn that consists of a cotton and acrylic blend. I felt this yarn would be perfect for a scarf because the cotton would add a lighter feel while the acrylic adds warmth. Although the website shows only four colorway options, there were at least six in store that I can remember.
The color I chose is called Bejeweled. It is a mix of gold, navy blue, teal and purple. It is such a gorgeous shade. I love that this yarn incorporates many colors making it easy to find something already in your wardrobe to match. 🙂
I decided to go with the Suzette Stitch for this scarf. Because of how this yarn is spun, I knew whatever stitch I chose would not give good stitch definition. If you’ve never crocheted the Suzette Stitch before, don’t fear! It is a very simple stitch that consists of clusters of single crochet and double crochet that offset with each row.
I just love how this scarf turned out! The added bulk to the yarn allowed this project to work up quickly. This is also a fantastic beginner pattern! I hope you enjoy it!
