Easy Knitted Scarf

This scarf is was knitted with Blick Fang a boucle merino wool yarn. I was instantly attracted to the variegated colors of the yarn and decided that it would make a nice warm scarf. Although I dislike knitting in garter stitch (knitting every row) it was the only stitch that showcased the boucle texture of the yarn. The pattern is beginner friendly and knits up quickly on size 9 needles.

Here's the finished scarf. It's quickly becoming my favorite scarf. The colors go with almost anything and it's soft and warm. It was cold and windy the day this picture was taken so I wrapped the scarf twice around my neck and tied it for extra warmth.
