I loved this song when I discovered it; I still do. The pink yarn used in this scarf was the inspiration for this name.

Worked brown: purl, knit; pink: knit purl, alternating colors every two passes. Surprisingly, I ended up with a different feature color on either side.

Brokenhearted by K. D. Lang
I have been told – twice now – that this cowl looks very christmassy. While I have to admit that it does, I named it Brokenhearted because that is how I was feeling during the knit.
Dimensions: 11-inch diameter x 20-inch height
Ever since this cold weather set in, I have needed more protection while crocheting/knitting so I decided to make a longer cowl that I could pull up over my head.
Knit in garter.

Universal Classic Chunky
Color: 60639 Petrol Blue; Content: 75% Acrylic, 25% Wool; Weight: 5, Bulky
Bernat Softee Chunky
Color: 28219 Seagreen; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: 6, Super Bulky
I have had the Universal yarn since I crocheted “Atlantis” back in 2011. This marks the last skein in my stash. However, I needed a complimentary color to make a charity scarf, so I headed over to JOANN Fabric & Crafts. I found the Bernat and went with it for color, figuring the different in weight would not affect the proposed scarf design.
