Checkered-flag Rhino Scarf!

A good friend of mine who does snowboard racing wanted a red and black checkered flag scarf, so I figured the best way to do that would be to use double knitting so it would be pretty and patterned on both sides. Unfortunately it took forever though! It's a little shorter than I would have liked but i didnt have extra time or yarn. I added the little reversible rhino at the bottom because Ryan's nickname is "Ryan-oserous".

it was done with just one skein of each color of cascade 220 on size US9 needles. It blocked out to a little over 5 ft long I think.
