Pink Diamond Scarf

This is the first scarf I designed myself.  Which is not as impressive as it sounds, because surely thousands of other knitters have come up with this same fun and easy pattern.  This one is great because it only requires you to know two stitches - knit and purl.

This took me about 3.5 hours, but could be done faster if you don't watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills at the same time.

Please note that the below pattern will yield a short but serviceable scarf.  If you like your scarves a little longer, you might want to pick up an extra skein.






You will need:

1-2 Skeins Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Yarn 6 oz (170 g), 106 yd (97 m); 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool -- The color I used is Blossom (UPC 023032641034)
