This is my new scarf.
I love my new scarf.
I've been wearing it everywhere.
It love the way it looks on me.
It looks good on my fence.
It even looks good on my dog.
This is quite possibly the easiest scarf I've ever made...and also my favorite!
We had some unseasonably cold weather here in Texas. It made me want a scarf. I had one skein of chunky orange yarn. It was calling out to be a scarf. I looked around on Ravelry. I cast on for two different scarves, but didn't love them. I pulled out my book of stitch patterns and played with a bunch. Then I found the one (the purse stitch)... and my new favorite scarf was born.
