Pattern Notes:
Cast on 11 sts
Knit every row
Color changes are worked into next row.  Cut a tail about 3" long and twist into the stitches while knitting.
All color changes must be on the same edge (right in this case); otherwise it won't look "clean" on the display side.
Bind off when entire roll of eyelash yarn is almost used up.
Weave in last tail.

This scarf is wonderfully soft and eye-catching as well!  The color combinations are endless.  A rainbow colored scarf would be lovely.  Cost of this scarf is quite affordable (half a skein of chenille is $2.50 and eyelash yarn on sale is about $3.00 for a total around $5).  It knits up VERY quickly as well...great for last minute gifts.
