Midnight in Autumn- A Free Crochet Scarf Pattern

It is no secret that purple is my favorite color. My birthstone is amethyst and I think that is why I initially grew to love it. The particular colorway of the yarn I selected for this scarf has multiple shades of purple with hints of blue and green, and reminds me of a dark night sky. The fabric of the scarf is lightweight and perfect for a breezy autumn walk.

Full disclosure- this is my first ever written pattern! However, it has been reviewed by a technical editor so I hope you find that it is easy to understand.  Contact me with any questions, and please post pictures to social media and Ravelry!
