I think I’ve found a favorite… it looks nice, is easy, and works up quick.
The pattern is available online for free at Simple Scarf Pattern you just go there and click on the red text that says “free pattern instructions”.
It seems to look nice in various types of yarn. I like both the ones that are a single color and the multi-color ones as pictured above.
If you decide to try it out, please let me know what you think!
