Very Easy Fuzzy Puff Stitch Scarf

Fuzzy Puff Stitch Scarf 
I have been working on my "Foggy Dawn Sweater Project" for quite some time, and I needed a break. When I was teaching knitting and crocheting class one of my students brought Caron's "Latte Cake" yarn. Since I haven't been to a yarn store for quite some time, I decided to drive after class to buy this yarn. I checked on my Michaels app if they have "Late Cake" on sale and yes they did - for $7 plus 20% off including sale price items. So, I went and bought me 2 balls for a scarf and a hat.

I decided to make my scarf wider than I usually make them, and to my surprise, I used both balls! So I had to go to the store get one more ball for my hat (Pattern for this hat coming soon). So please be aware that you will need a lot of yarn for this project. However, it will look great when you are finished. I love it. And so did my daughter because she requested one for her in her preferred color.

This scarf took me 2 full days to finish (and I am reasonably fast in crocheting) - so depending on your width (make your own), length (make your own also), and speed you may be done with it within two (or more days).

Look for a pattern and video of a matching hat in the near future.

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you who finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.
