I like keyhole scarflets because they are neat and easy to wear. You don't have to do wonder how to wrap them around your neck so that they will not unravel and tangle up or catch on everything as you move along. And I like to make them visually pretty. This one combines two different stitches and a feminine shell edging. It is a relatively easy project and a pretty addition to any wardrobe. A great pattern for charity or gift-giving. Enjoy!
