New Pattern: Ribbon Candy V Scarf

Every now and then,  I like to offer patterns for free and this is one that I designed specifically with that in mind.

The Ribbon Candy V Scarf is really easy to work up and can be made in any size.  Instructions are given for an 18" doll sized scarf also to give girls a "mommy & Me" set. A photo is shown at the very bottom of this post as an example.
AND - if you keep going on the repeat rows, it would make an AWESOME afghan!

I hope you enjoy this pattern and I would love to see photos if you make something with it.  Feel free to post it on my  Google+ group or my Facebook page. 
If you would like a PDF ready version, it's available for purchase here:
