This scarf began as a simple swatch during the 2012 Yarn Tasting at Sage! The yarn is Party from Crystal Palace, a 100% nylon ribbon yarn featuring subtly shifting colors and excellent yardage.  I worked up this cute scarf using just one skein — grab two to make a dramatically long one, or to gift yourself and a deserving friend with a sweet summer accessory.  The pink shown here is called Tulip Petals, but it reminded me of a trip to the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., my dad’s hometown!  This beauty went to my Gramsey, and my second one (for keeps, this time) is nearly finished.

Large needles and elongated drop stitches make this a fast, fun knit.  The pattern (including different styling ideas!) is available for download on ravelry for $3, and for free with purchase of Party from Sage!  I hope you’ll enjoy it — and don’t forget to post photos of your finished projects!  Happy knitting!
