Pink Wave Keyhole Scarf

Lock in the warmth with this new scarf style that is comfortable and easy to wear when temperatures take a dip. A keyhole scarf is basically a scarf with a hole in it. One end of the scarf is put through the hole to keep it in place around your neck without being bulky. This Pink Wave Keyhole Scarf is a quick and easy knit scarf pattern and makes a great gift as the colder weather approaches.
