Simple Fun and Fancy Fur Scarf (Knit or Crochet)

My MIL really loves the red Fun Fur Scarf I made for her. She asked me to make a purple scarf for her best friend, and I thought I'd make it a bit different. I thought a pull through thinner scarf would be pretty -- with the option to either look casual or a little bit dressy.

Here is the finished result.

Just pulled through at the bottom, the scarf has a nice, loose casual look.

Double wrapped around the neck and then pulled through gives a dressier look, and also a warmer look for cooler weather.

My 15-year old son was the model -- I had to promise to cut his face out of the photos for him to agree to model a purple fuzzy scarf. lol. :)
