I blended two strands of yarn at different points in the scarf to get a nice gradation of color. The yarn was Red Heart Super Saver and my hook size was a P/11.5 mm. This is a good way to use up your scraps as you don't have to follow what I did, but make it your own. I'm getting so many compliments on this scarf!
It's really fast to make!

Here is the pattern:

This is really good! Great job. I like the pink and red; not so much on the green though.
So questions right quick... is it hot? itchy? scratchy? I love to feel soft things on my skin, and have to force myself to wear scarves of any type. Although I love them, I cant stand something around my neck, but I am considering making one. Anyway, I have plenty of red heart yarn laying around the house so I could use some of it up making this.

Hot? Itchy? Scratchy? No,no and no! The big P hook, the elongated stitches, the open work center and the falling leaves make this a cool scarf. You're not going to suffocate at all. You must use the the P/11.5 mm hook, A K hook will make the stitches too tight. I used the colors that I wanted to de-stash. In the pattern, I give you choices and directions on how to blend, but it is entirely up to you to make it your own. Read the pattern and view the 2 slide shows. It's a very easy yet dramatic scarf. People are constantly stopping me asking where I bought my scarf!  I hope this extra information helps. I am always available for further assistance. Just PM me.

Take care,
Maria

Ruby, You can make this scarf on your lunch break! It looks so pretty when it's worn around your neck because the leaves give it so much texture.

Take care,
Maria
