The WinterBud scarf is inspired by the lofty fuzziness of the soy yarn. What else is there to think of during those winter months but the flowers that will come soon while attempting to stay warm.

WinterBud is a fun, quick and fairly easy knitting project. The scarf is knit in two pieces and sewn together or a provisional cast on can be used. Knitted with increases and decreases flowing back and forth, you can knit this in any yarn and it would look lovely in a linen or cotton for the summer months.
