Child's Rib Scarf

I finished this 3x3 rib Crystal Palace Kid Merino scarf on size 4s for charity. It will certainly warm a child with its soft fuzziness. This is a make-it-up-as-I-go pattern.

The flared ends are created by the garter rows and a crocheted trim. I doubled this very fine gauge yarn to give it a little more heft.
