Chenille yarn already has a texture all its own, but I thought it would be fun to add a textured stitch to this velvet-like yarn to make a super-soft and warm scarf that's fun to knit.

About the Yarn:
Chenille yarn is somewhat fuzzy and plush, making it ideal for projects that you're going to want to touch. Touch Me is a great choice because it is a combination of nylon microfiber and wool, giving it extra warmth and stretch.
Though the amount of wool in this yarn is very small, Muench Yarns advises against washing the yarn by machine, as it can felt. The company suggests dry cleaning any project made with this yarn.
