The Penny Pocket Scarf is designed to be playful, practical, and warm! Directions are given for two sizes, adult and child, along with directions for easy customization of the length. Two pocket style options are also included, one a more feminine style and the other a more gender neutral look. This scarf is made with weight category six yarn, making it extra warm and a project that can be completed over a couple evenings! (PLEASE NOTE: The pattern for the ear warmer shown in one of the images above is not INCLUDED in this purchase.)
