I discovered a cool yarn this year: Bernat Denim Style. Its a cotton acrylic blend that feels like sweatshirt fleece when its knitted up. I made several hats and had lots of oddments left over so I decided to use them up by making a scarf for myself. Its a very simple scarf and I am pleased with how it looks.
On size 8 needles
CO 36 stitches K1P2 for 16 rows and switch to next color
Continue until you get sick of knitting or have used up all the oddments.
