Pattern Description:

One of my biggest complaints about scarves is 1) they usually aren't long enough and 2) if you don't tie them right they are useless. To solve this I decided to knit it with a keyhole in it so that I can put the one end through and then wrap it around my neck. I knit it with some wonderful Berroco Vintage Chunky that I got the day after Christmas last year. This yarn is sooooo wonderful that I am going to be picking some more up so that I can knit some more scarves for Christmas presents. I brought it with me to one of my tutoring sessions because my student had texted me to say he was going to be late. And when he saw it he loved it and has been asking me since what I'm going to do with the scarf now that it is finished. Sorry pal, but I can't wait to wear this when it gets cold! Or as my 4-yr-old says it feels like a nice snuggle!
