The Mango Salsa Scarf is a joyful and pretty scarf crocheted with fun sock yarn. Use self striping yarn as shown or have fun experimenting with variegated, hand painted or solid varieties. A super simple mesh stitch sequence adds lightness while still being soft and cozy.

- 4.5 inches wide and as long as you like
- Sock Yarn of your Choice, scarf shown used 393 yards. Yarn pictured is Sensations “Truly Pattern” in the “Bright Multi” colorway. However, feel free to use your favorite sock yarn. This pattern produces a stretchy, drapey scarf, so a variety of different sock yarns would be lovely.

- Tapestry needle (for weaving in ends if needed)
Foundation row: DC in 7th chain from hook, *chain 2, skip two chains and work one DC in the next chain, repeat to end.
Row 1: Chain 5 and turn. *Work a dc in first chain space, chain two, repeat from * to end of row.
