paint the town scarf

December 28, 2014 by Angie

I finished this Vanna White Lion Brand pattern Paint the Town scarf on Christmas morning. I think my mom likes it!

You can find the entire pattern for free here. I like that it’s all single and double crochet which allowed me to focus on the pattern itself. The pattern is on the complicated side with several different rows. I did just three rows of the 3dc at the start and finish of the scarf and skipped the edging recommended in the original pattern. I’m not sure that mine was 122 rows because I didn’t count it but I made it very long so it can be worn the way Vanna does in the photo.
