Stripey Scarf

I got really excited when I found Red Heart's Super Saver Stripes and grabbed two skeins but wasn't quite sure what to do them. Self-striping yarns are great but they do tend to have a pretty short striping sequence (depending on the brand) so it can be hard to use them for larger projects. This scarf is a beginner friendly project and the fun part is that the border is built right into the pattern! Please comment and let me know what you think!
