knitting: green scarf

Basil chenille yarn–2 skeins, size 8 knitting needles
Project Pattern:
26 stitches, alternating rows of knit and purl. (54 inches long)
4 rows of knit to produce raised accents at each end, plus one row purl fastened off in purl.

This is my first completed knitting project. The next time I work with chenille yarn I must remember to use larger knitting needles. This scarf is heavy, it will be a very warm scarf with the tight knit thick yarn… it is my scarf-blanket.
