This scarf is really simple and easy -- but the wavy ribs cause the edges
of the scarf to curve in and out, making it look more complicated than it
is. If you can knit and purl, you can make this scarf --but you'd better
use a row counter if you know what's good for you.

I love Cascade 220 and mostly use it for felting projects. When this
color came into the LYS, I grabbed it -- and decided that what I really needed was a pink scarf.
