I had an event to attend a couple of weeks ago and needed a scarf or cowl in warm colors. I rummaged through my stash of yarn and found this lovely Red Heart Treasure yarn. I had 2 skeins and that was just enough!
The yarn is a #4 weight worsted, is easy to work with and comes in lovely variegated/striping colors. This scarf is about 8″ x 60″ and I added the tapered ends with the tassel for a different look. you can easily increase the width of this scarf by continuing the increases until it is the width you like and you can make it longer by adding more rows before starting the decreases. The textured stitch is achieved by working in the back loop. The actual stitch combination is a very simple and basic one, but worked in back loop it looks almost like ridges — I think it’s fun!
I love that it can be worn several different ways which makes it fun for accessorizing.
You may purchase this yarn on Red Heart’s website!
