Chloe Chenille Scarf

This quick and cozy scarf is the perfect accessory for any beginner knitter. This reversible simple shifting ribbed pattern incorporates only knit and purl stitches to create a texture just as simple as a rib, but with a little more visual intrigue. The shifting lines appear to be on a bias without the need for increases or decreases and are subtly hidden in the plush texture of the yarn. Whether you want a smaller stylish accessory or a longer scarf to bundle up with in the winter, this expeditious project can be made with just one ball of yarn.
