Okay, I played around a bit with photo editing on this one.
This is a pattern I found when the amazing Judy of Stitch Along With Me directed me to Yarn Harlot for this scarf pattern. It is simple! (You should see the gorgeous yarn she spins. I cheated - I purchased my yarn.) And be sure to visit Judy's website to see the many beautiful items she has knitted!
For the red scarf, I used a chunky yarn and size 11 needles.
For the blue scarf, I used a medium weight yarn and again used the size 11 needles. It gave it a more open, lacy look.
I made it just long enough to wrap around my neck and tuck into my coat. It's nice to have that little bit of extra protection against the wild winter winds of Wisconsin - to go with my down-filled coat, my insulated boots, snowpants, polar fleece hat, and gloves. ( Oh, must not forget the ear muffs!)
Re. Knitting: Am I the only one who doesn't seem to get the ends woven in until weeks after a project is made??
