Miss Marple Scarf in Acrylic

    I had to remake the Miss Marple Scarf in a yarn I could wear around my neck that wouldn't itch.  I knit this pattern about a week ago (blog post here) in some wool yarn I had in my stash and although the colors in the yarn were quite pretty, the scarf is extremely scratchy.  I knew when I tried it on after it was finished I wouldn't wear it very much.   

    But I really love the design of the scarf and the name of it.  It's super cute and I knew I wanted to re-knit this fun pattern in a soft acrylic yarn that wouldn't itch.  I used a skein of Caron Simply Soft in the Bone colorway that I found in Walmart for about $3.65 including tax.
