Mint Leaves Scarf is a simple and quick scarf that creates a knitted fringe on both ends.

Knit with one ball of Cascade 220 it is also very economical but versatile as you can knit this scarf in any weight or type of yarn desired. Simply change the needle size to fit the yarn selected.

The tiny leaves remind me of mint leaves that grow in my garden and the dainty dropped stitches add that special touch.
