Happy Monday, friends! Truthfully, I am pretty beat today from my classes; there’s a lot of tests and projects due this week, and I’m tired already. I don’t what it is about everything being due in all my classes every 4 weeks, but you’d think the teachers would try to mix due dates up a bit so that students weren’t taking 3 tests in one day! (Yep. That’ll be me this week.)
Anyway, I promised y’all in my roundup of garland patterns that I had something new to share. So it’s time for me to introduce my Hills & Heights scarf!
I named it the Hills & Heights scarf for the edging along two of the sides (which I designed myself while in a hospital waiting room). The edging reminds me of gentle rolling hills and towering mountains.
This scarf was really simple to make, even though the bulkiness of the yarn made it kind of hard to see the stitches in places. I’ve decided to post the pattern for you, so have fun making, and please let me know if you run into complications! Have a crafty Monday! (And by crafty, I mean working with materials and being creative, not being diabolical.)

~I don’t mind if you use my patterns to sell items (just don’t sell the pattern itself), but I would appreciate it if you used your own pictures of what you’ve made on your website or listing. My pictures might not be very good, but they are mine! Copyright Lauren L. 2014~
Happy makings, friends!
