Denver Football Free Crochet Scarf Pattern

The Denver Broncos are going to Super Bowl 50, and I want to celebrate. To do that, I’ll make one of my most popular patterns available for FREE! That’s right, the Denver Football Free Crochet Scarf Pattern is now free right here on the Marly Bird website.

If you want an ad-free pattern that is available for purchase on Ravelry here:

Game Day Scarf

And to make things even easier, I’ve made a video showing you how to make the scarf! It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Now, a little note about the video: you’ll notice that this video was filmed a while ago (based on the studio set), and at the time, I had planned on only selling the pattern. This means there are times in the video when I mention purchasing the pattern, or I don’t give exact chain amounts, etc. But don’t worry! This pattern right here, this FREE CROCHET PATTERN available right here, is the same pattern I used in the video!

So, what are you waiting for…grab your hook, and let’s show our Broncos Spirit!
