491 Hearts of Oak Scarf
Part of our ongoing participation in the Stitch Red Campaign, the waving edges, three-dimensional texture, and double sided interest of the Hearts of Oak stitch pattern can really stand out in this striking scarf. The bright Red Northampton is a great accent color, especially against gray and black.

- Needlessly Difficult
Comments about Valley Yarns 491 Hearts of Oak Scarf:
I am an experienced knitter, used to complicated patterns, and found this Hearts of Oak pattern to be difficult to follow and the outcome was not pretty. With most patterns you can 'read' the pattern in your work as you knit. Not with this one. I knit about five inches of the scarf before giving up. It did not have the lovely texture I expected. All drudgery and no fun.
