Chenille yarn already has an irresistibly luxe texture, but this scarf takes it to another level by knitting it with a textured stitch. The result is a super-soft, swoon-worthy scarf that will keep you warm on even the coldest winter days. And did we mention it's also fun to knit?

Knitting With Chenille Yarn
Chenille yarn is somewhat fuzzy and plush, making it ideal for projects that come in contact with your skin, like sweaters and scarves. Keep in mind that it does tend to shed, so take precautions before you wear the scarf. The Touch Me line of yarn is a great choice because it is a combination of nylon microfiber and wool, giving it extra warmth and stretch.
