Quick Pineapple Peacock Scarf


I came up with this on the spot.  Takes a couple hours to make and it's extremely customizable in length and yarn.  This was yarn I got from another sweater that I bought for a couple dollars from the thrift store.  This pattern is for personal use only it took me a couple hours to make the pattern, please respect that.  Do not sell the final product or the pattern.  Thanks!
