Curlicue Cutie Scarf; A Free Crochet Pattern For You

Today I have a fun little  scarf pattern for you. Instead of  traditional fringe, this scarf has cute little curlicues at the ends, so I decided to call it the "Curlicue Cutie Scarf."  I love making the curlicues, and I hope you will, too!

The scarf begins with an Eyelet Foundation. If you are not familiar with this technique, you can find a tutorial here: Eyelet Foundation
