Pink Fairy Scarf
Lightweight yarn and a pretty pastel shade pink work together in this knitted scarf pattern to create a summer friendly accessory worthy of any fair lady. Part of what makes the Pink Fairy Scarf special is its construction. Knit in two separate pieces, the scarf is sewn together at the end of the pattern so that each piece can feature an attractive, scalloped edge. No matter what color you choose to make your scarf in, this pattern will become a treasured project for years to come.
