So I want to make a floofy pink scarf for this winter. Kinda feather boa like, if that makes sense. Any yarn suggestions? (Please be gentle on my wallet--I'm a college student and always broke :D)

Thanks so much for any ideas!

PS--What kinda stitch/pattern should I use for it? Garter?

Try the pocketbook friendly Lion Brand yarn Fun Fur. It will be perfect for your boa, in fact there is a free boa pattern leaflet in the isle next to the yarn at my local Hobby Lobby.

Try Mary Maxim's web-site under novelty yarns- they got some nice, cheap feathery stuff there!

Austermann Angora Wolle 70/30 Oddballs

tickled pink or hot pink. It's not cheap.. but not too bad. and you could use it with a pink wool or cotton to make it more bulky. This stuff feels like heaven. If you can afford it.. I'd just double this yarn for a little more bulk.

How about TechnoHair. This stuff is SOOO soft and very furry. It runs about $8.95 for 100 yards which is more than enough for a nice scarf plus a good selection of colors. Knits up fast on large needles. I did one and I just love it. Can't wait for cooler weather so I can wear it.

I just thought of another one that is nice. Splash by Crystal Palace. Very soft, comes in tons of colors including varigated ones and is very easy to knit. The TechnoHair requires paying attention. But both look great done.

Try the Paton's ChaCha on sale at Smiley's. I just made a nice, thick scarf from two balls.
