Free Pattern Friday--the latest for the Red Scarf Project--Take the Trolley

Well it's finally here! I prefer to have my latest Red Scarf Project pattern completed earlier in the year, but it's still just March and above all else I LOVE how it turned out!

 I love how the bobble ridges run the length of it, like trolley tracks.

This pic shows the back side as well--no bobbles to show off but still looks quite presentable!
