MY JANUARY SCARF
I thought it would be fun to start posting a Scarf of the Month. So this is the first in a series of scarf patterns. Some will be knit and some crocheted. Some will be for warmth and some just for fun.
Knit with bulky or worsted weight yarn and larger than usual needles, this highly textured scarf is of the for warmth variety.
I hope you enjoy the pattern. Suzetta

I love new patterns, especially scarves as I make them and donate them to one of our local cancer centers.
Actually it's a very common stitch pattern.
There are several versions of rib patterns most commonly used for sock cuffs, that make great scarves.
