A Gathered Scarf
This is the year of scarves -- at least for Christmas presents! I'll be knitting as fast as I can to get all these gifts done in time, but I think it will be well worth it in the end.
This was knit using Knit Picks Palette in Blue Note Heather. (The photos do not show the true color -- it's really a deep sapphire with purples and turquoise mixed in.) I've never ordered from Knit Picks before and was pleasantly surprised with it. I love all the colors they offer and it is so soft! I found this free pattern on Ravelry.
As it turns out, this scarf turned out so well, I've decided to make this same pattern for another family member. It is the perfect width, length and texture for both of my recipients!
