Alma's Scarf Review by Patricia English

I made Alma's Scarf for my sister-in-law for her birthday. She is not the tallest person to walk the earth, so I shortened the scarf by one repeat. It fit her beautifully and she loved it, SO I made one for myself. I had great fun knitting these and the change in pattern keeps the knitting fresh. Now if I only had another sister-in-law!!
