Basic Scarf Reviewed by Marijean Hislop on 2011-01-05 ****
I have found most scarfs roll. Since this is so thick it is easy to lay the ends flat against a coat & it tends to stay quite well. I made one for each of my daughters for Christmas & they love them ... more than I do. One asked if I'd make another for her in a different color as did my grandaughter. I did find that adding one more stitch to the edging on each side did help the rolling problem a little.
