Skyscraper Scarf

In Patterns, Scarves, Shop sample available, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon

So, true confession time. I’ve never been one for video games, and even with a smart phone of my very own, games aren’t really a part of my daily grind. But, a few months ago, I installed an app called Tiny Tower on my I-pad, and I gotta tell you, I got hooked. When I was finishing this scarf, my mister saw it and exclaimed, “Tiny Tower!” I couldn’t very well name the scarf after my erstwhile video game obsession, but Skyscraper Scarf is a nod to my ever-growing Tiny Tower.
