A Swerve Scarf in Just 60 Seconds

This has to be the easiest scarf to make. By the time Christmas arrives again I can have a tote full of gifts.  The cost of the yarn is between $5.49 to $7.89.  Since it’s so easy and  takes 60 seconds I will spring into action when a yarn sale happens and arm myself with a 40% off coupon and my 15% off discount card.
