I adore this scarf. The colors, the texture, everything. It looks super easy but so beautiful!

Bulky scarves are amazing, and this one is so pretty! That yarn is fantastic. I have to try this.

It its amazing how when you use the right yarn and needle how something so easy to do can look so classy.I see these simple scarves on sale at the Christmas markets for quite a bit a money. And now I know how they are made. Easy to knit and they will be popular. Thank you.

This is a colorful scarf, and with the jumbo weight yarn and large needles it will knit up quickly. My only issue is the Red Heart Collage yarn is an acrylic and wool blend, and I don't use wool (or other animal based fibers). But it's easy enough to substitute another type of yarn, maybe even a self patterning one.
