The scarf is knitted in DS Brioche with slip DS selvedges.
To decorate this simple scarf I decided to add two pompons.
One evening when the project was just finished I saw my scarf on
TV! It was an interesting program about Beatrix Potter. Among
of her first printed Christmas cards (in 1890) was one with “Two
rabbits in hats and coats with walking sticks walking through
snow”. One of them was wearing a long scarf with two pompons
the same colour as mine! After this amazing coincidence, it was
clear that my scarf would be called Beatrix.

You can see the scarf in this video (time 1:35 - 1:55):
