I think this is going to be really fun to experiment and play with Red Heart Yarn! As you may have heard, Red Heart Yarn was acquired by Yarnspirations.com. And as Stitch Ambassadors for Yarnspirations, we will be creating all sort of new items!
Several weeks ago, our friends at Yarnspirations sent us Red Heart Dreamy yarn. It reminds me of an acrylic version of a wool roving type yarn. It has a very nice and soft finish with a brushed look. I chose the Buff color for this scarf but they have a lot of nice shades of color. Another yarn that I think would like great with this pattern is Red Heart Super Saver Brushed.
I kept the pattern really simple and reversible so it looks the very same on either side. I added just a bit of fringe to finish it off.
This scarf will be auctioned off for my neighbor’s Colon Cancer Foundation she started in honor of her late husband. She raises money each year to provide support and awareness to people going through Colon Cancer.
For more information about her foundation, please see the Andrew J. Somora Foundation facebook page.
I’m beyond excited that she wanted a crocheted scarf to be a part of her fundraiser!
