The pattern for the green scarf on the mannequin: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hitchhiker My Ravelry project page for the green scarf (includes yarn info): http://www.ravelry.com/projects/verypink/hitchhiker The bulky blue yarn I'm using to demonstrate is Knit Picks Swish Bulky: http://www.knitpicks.com/cfyarns/yarn_display.cfm?ID=5420176 The double-pointed needles I'm using are Crystal Palace wood needles.
