Mountain Orchid

Best Blog Tips

This keyhole scarf was made for my Aunt June's birthday. Purple is her favorite color and since she lives high up in Colorado, I decided to call this scarf Mountain Orchid. It is super easy to make and since it came out so feminine, I decided to share it with all of you.  Enjoy!
