Longtime readers know that I’m a huge fan of Lion Brand Heartland yarn. It’s one of my “go-to yarns” for gift projects. This winter, I needed a gift for my dad and I looked around to see which colors of Heartland I had that might work for a dude-approved scarf. I didn’t have enough for a scarf in any one color, so I came up with the idea to do color blocking but while holding two strands of yarn together. In this way, I could alternate between solid color blocks and tweedy color blocks to create more subtle color changes.

Using two strands make this a much faster project than typical for medium weight yarn.

Heartland yarn is available online at Lion Brand | LoveCrafts | WeCrochet | JOANN | Amazon.

For the scarf photos, I looked a the Scarf Knot Master List at Scarves.Net for styling suggestions. My favorite options were the Layered Knot…

…the Simple Tie…

…the Double Loop…

…and the Square Knot.

As you can see, this scarf is pretty versatile! The colors I selected are similar, but you could dramatically change the look by choosing contrasting colors.
