Chenille yarn already has a texture all its own, but I thought it would be fun to add a textured stitch to this velvet-like yarn to make a super-soft and warm scarf that's fun to knit.

About the Yarn:
Chenille yarn is somewhat fuzzy and plush, making it ideal for projects that you're going to want to touch. Touch Me is a great choice because it is a combination of nylon microfiber and wool, giving it extra warmth and stretch.
