Glass Bottle Scarf

This reversible scarf was designed with cold weather in mind. The pattern stitch is incredibly easy, so the knitting can get tedious, but is suitable for beginners. The lacy eyelets give the scarf some texture while trapping in warmth; they remind me of bubbles trapped in glass.
