One Skein Snuggle Scarf
I present to you the One Skein Snuggle Scarf!
This scarf is is worked with a 4 stitch double knit edging. The edging is particularly snuggly and cozy next to the skin. It may curl during knitting, but lays quite flat after blocking. A pretty frog closure keeps the scarf securely in place without the need for a knot, and adds a touch of elegance. The very basic stitch pattern is designed to show off your lovely yarn, not distract from it.
Yarn: 1 skein of to die for, absolutely MUST knit now, worsted weight yarn.
Needles: Size 7 (or size needed to create a fabric you love)
