Unbelievable that the yarn does all the work. I love it. The super saver yarn is getting better all the time. And the price is not bad as well. Easy scarf and I have to buy enough yarn to make for friends because I know they will want a scarf too. Thank you.

I love this! Fair Isle knitting looks amazing but is wayyy too complicated for me at this point. What a perfect dupe!
