Pattern description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: I kept seeing this ‘keyhole’ scarf at stores in Chicago, and thought it would be great for our windy winters because it wouldn’t blow away, However, I didn’t like the colors or fibers of the ones I saw, so I said to myself, ‘I can do that.’ I ended up making five last winter as gifts for friends and family (I even made a mini one for a friend’s baby girl). What’s great about this scarf is that it is quick to make and won’t break the bank.

Skills needed: Cast on, knit, purl, change color, bind off

Yarn needed: 2 skeins of color A; 2 skeins of color B
