Afghan Scarf

Meet my new scarf! I suppose if I am going to introduce you I should give it a name. It is only the polite thing to do. I'll start over. Meet Miss Agatha! She looks like an Agatha don't you think?

This has been my project this week. It definitely took longer than I anticipated. It is so soft, and plush, and warm. And maybe just a tad heavy. I doubled up the strands of yarn and tried a new stitch called "Pineapple." Each bobble consists of 16 strands! It didn't turn out anything like the picture showed, but I love the result! Because of the thickness it is a bit like a portable afghan. Perfect!

It measures 100"x12"

Now if I only had somewhere cold to wear it! North Pole here I come!
