Boho Spirit Luna Scarf

Cygnets Luna scarf is a simple pattern making it a great project for those new to crochet and will no doubt transform any outfit with the cool Boho colours.

The finished scarf measures 16cm x 150cm but you can double the width if you'd prefer it to be more summer shawl rather than winter scarf.

What you need

Baby Cardigan and Bonnet

There's no denying it, you can't beat knitted clothes for babies. They wash better, they last longer and they're cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Not only that, they're far more cost effective. 

This lovely duo are knitted in Cygnets Pure Baby Print Misty Rose, but why not try Ocean Mist for a boy.
