Scarf Tutorial from Julie

Hi everyone! Passing on a message from Julie - she is teaching her scarf pattern to those that are interested at retreat!
 
To all retreaters:
Anyone interested in making a red heart boutique sashay scarf will need to buy one skein of yarn at either Farm and Home or at JoAnne's and will need 5.5mm or US 9 needles. I will be teaching a class at the retreat this January.
Thanks,
Julie
