I knit up a whimsical garter stitch scarf with fringe using a thick/thin wool & acrylic blend yarn for my daughter, Maddie. It matches her brightly colored magenta coat. The other scarf I am knitting for her, the Palidrome Scarf, matches her soft pink and sheepskin coat. Scarves knit up so easily! This was from a discontinued yarn sold at JoAnn's. I think I paid $0.99 for the skein. One skein is all it took! It's cute and very appropriate for a 3 year old!
