Sometimes combining two yarns makes a project much more interesting than it would have been if it were knit with either one of the yarns on its own. Such is the case with this fuzzy Garter Stitch scarf.
The combination of a smooth wool, cashmere and nylon yarn with a wispy eyelash type yarn makes for a scarf with a much more interesting look and an irresistible feel.
And because it's Garter Stitch, knitters new and more experienced can knit this up in a flash for fun or a last-minute gift.
