Windy Day Scarf

To celebrate the release of Brad's first children's book, There's Only One You!, I've designed several knitted items. The first to be released is the Windy Day Scarf. This pattern will be free on my blog for a limited time!  

I designed the scarf using Longwood, and extrafine merino superwash from Cascade yarns. This soft and squishy yarn was a pleasure to knit with, and you'll love having it around your neck to keep you cozy during the cold weather. We have lots of color combinations to choose from at the shop right now!  

You'll need 6 skeins of Longwood, 3 of each color; and size 6-16 inch circular needles (or whatever size gives you 5 stitches and 6.5 rounds to an inch in circular stockinette).

Here's the instructions to make the scarf:

Using yellow, cast on 72 stitches. Place marker and join in the round; knit 24 rounds. Change to purple and knit 8 rounds. Repeat the last 32 rounds 7 more times.

Using yellow, knit 8 rounds. Change to purple and knit 24 rounds. Repeat the last 32 rounds 7 more times.

Bind-off. Apply purple fringe to the yellow end and yellow fringe to the purple edge. 

Enjoy your cozy new scarf!
