Columbia Chevron Super Scarf -free crochet pattern-

As soon as I see black, white, or grey I get excited. Even more so, this is one nice super scarf!  So, you've probably noticed by now that super scarves are the next big thing in crochet and knit this season, and I honestly didn't know what to think of them at first. But the more I see, the more I like. For example this crochet super scarf, with the use of chevron lines in basic colors, which makes a super impact! And the pom poms... I love those too! This is a Ravelry download.

Oh my, these are cute!  I love how these are perfect for either a baby boy or baby girl, and they'd make a great accessory for a Christmas photo!  My little girl is growing up now, but if I can figure out how to make them bigger, I know that she would adore these!  This is also a cute baby gift idea, and babies love to pull their slippers and socks off, but now they have these sweet gingerbread men to play with. So cute!
