At the Knit and Crochet Show last week, one of the first skeins of yarn I was handed was a bright pink ball of Red Heart Boutique Swanky. And I all I could think was, “Oooo, sparkles!” And everyone around me had the same reaction – so shiny! Well by lunch time I couldn’t wait to get started, and using the commemorative hook I’d also picked up that morning, I got to work on the Suddenly Sparkles Scarf!

This infinity scarf uses exactly one skein of Red Heart Boutique Swanky – I had just enough left over that I’m not too worried about gauge. The sparkles are built right in this yarn, and the pattern is quick but still interesting. Each row is different from the last, and the end result looks great at a distance or close up!
