Double-sided layers of front and back post treble crochets makes this scarf light to wear but incredibly warm. And the stitch pattern is completely reversible, making this stylish scarf look good from any angle!
I love to have a ton of scarves to choose from when I am heading out the door during the cold weather months, and I am also always looking for reversible stitches so the front and the back both look wonderful. I fell into this stitch because of how it looks, but the construction of the fabric gives warm air plenty of place to hang out, giving you warmth without bulk.
