Scarf for Girl's or Boy's Pattern

Our scarf was originally knitted with Beehive Caressa and used 6 ozs. We made another sample with P & B Speedwell, Quick Knit Wool and found that 8 ozs. were required. To knit this cosy scarf on large needles, be sure to make your choice of wool between the two given here. You will also need: Two No. 5 Beehive Knitting Needles.
