After knitting like a banshee for 4 days, I finished my Scarfie, which was a gift for my dear friend.

The Pattern: One ball knit scarfie, available for free from Lion Brand, specifically for this yarn. It’s a very simple scarf pattern that requires no more than a quick skim to master.

The Yarn: Scarfie in Forest/Black by Lion Brand. It’s listed as a bulky yarn, but feels very thin in my hands. It’s very soft, and feels pretty luxurious. I really love the ombre effects – it’s absolutely perfect for a scarf. I’d definitely recommend this yarn/pattern combo, especially as a gift. I got my yarn from Amazon for $7.49 (one skein makes a scarf!).

What’s next for me: Another friend has a birthday coming up in February, and she requested a pillow for her new apartment. Hope I finish in time!!
