Color blocking seems to be everywhere these days. I love adding a splash of color to make an outfit pop! It’s even better when the color pop is already in your clothes. I thought I could incorporate color blocking into a scarf. I dug around in my yarn stash and found a new skein hot pink yarn and left over cream colored yarn. For my scarf I used more of the pink color, but you could switch their placement for a more neutral scarf with a pink pop of color.
I’m still a beginner knitter so I kept this scarf simple. Knit one row, pearl the other. I just knitted the whole scarf and sewed the ends together. Simple!
