Get warm and cozy this week. I’m giving you a week of crafts and ideas on how to keep you warm this winter. Most of the ideas are crochet since I have been in a crocheting mood lately. Which is perfect because we are expecting heavy snow today. Darn you weatherman. I live in the South so I can have warm winters. None of this snow business. Although, what I like on a snowy winter day is to cuddle up with a warm blanket, a good book and hot cider.
Today we start off our warm and cozy week with a twirly crochet scarf I made for myself. It was a quick, last minute project. I was going out and wanted a scarf to go with my outfit. So I pulled out my crochet hook and yarn and went at it. I used a large P size hook and a really soft yarn. If you make something inspired by Simply Modern Mom, please upload pictures of it to our Flickr group to show it off to everyone. You may be featured on Simply Modern Mom.
If you crochet, here are the instructions to make your own.

row 1: sc in the second ch from the hook. [1 sc in each ch] to the end.
