I've recently completed a knitted scarf that I made for a young friend, Amber. She has moved to the USA to continue with her higher education and I wanted to make her something to keep her warm during the cold season. She likes the colours red and black so this is what I made for her...

A reversible ribbed scarf worked in a yarn of 80% wool-20% acrylic.
The scarf turned out to be soft and snuggly. Most importantly, it wasn't scratchy.
I think this deep red is very pretty. I tend to prefer colours with a cool tone
and this red with a blue undertone makes me happy. :) I think this colour suits Amber too.
The texture is lovely. It looks complicated but is really easy to make.
The free pattern is available at Red Heart.
