Autumn’s True Stripes Scarf

Super snuggly scarves are fun, quick and easy to make with super bulky yarn. Use the seed stitch to create a bumpy fabric that will lay flat and won’t add extra bulk. Wrap a couple times around the neck for a big bold accessory or drape a single loop in front for a traditional scarf drape.
