ScarfFor those of you that follow my blog, you know that I am not a knitter, but these scarves are so easy and pretty that anyone can do it.

Red Heart Yarn When I went to the fabric store I didn’t set out to get yarn to make another scarf, but this Red Heart Ribbon Yarn was sitting on an end counter (great marketing) and when I looked at it I thought, wow, I think that can be knitted like the ruffled scarf I made.
