My first two Grinch scarves from December 2013
I called them the Good Grinch (on the left) Vs. the Bad Grinch(on the right).

They where done with 2 Strands of  Red Heart Super Saver yarns. Besides the white parts there in 2 strands of fun fur & 2 strands of white. 
They also are a little shorter in the pattern above. 
Because I added 2 rows in the beginning & ending parts and also added 20 rows in the middle to make the scarf longer.
