A Knitted Scarf

Ever fashionable and functional, scarves are an essential winter accessory. Encourage your child to protect her chest and neck from the cold by letting her choose colors and patterns she loves. Knit scarves keep kids toasty, but make sure to avoid itchy wool blends that kids hate. Let your child play with different ways of styling her scarf. Here are some ideas: 1.) Fold scarf in half with the loose ends threaded through the loop. 2.) Drape scarf and toss one end over the shoulder for a European look. 3.) Wrap scarf all the way around the neck, and tuck in the ends to create a mock turtleneck.
