Candy Cane Scarf, free pattern preview

December 01, 2014

Starting the first day of advent and throughout the holidays, I try to wear a touch of red every day.  To this end, I decided I needed to add a bit of peppermint stick to my wardrobe.  I knit this in soft machine washable Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK in a slightly more sophisticated red and white, Strawberry and Snowdrop.  The candy cane colors give a burst of holiday cheer any time of year!  Knit entirely in garter stitch, this simple pattern is offered as a free pattern download and available on Ravelry.  You'll be surprised at how quickly it knits up.

Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK is not just for babies!
I used 2 skeins each of Snowdrop and Strawberry
Needles, size US6
Size:  6.75”x76”

This is so fun to wear.  I've only worn it once and got a lot of smiles and compliments!

I have another free pattern I'll be sharing this week--
a Santa, an Elf and a Snow Queen for your tree!

  6. Problem:
    While changing colours, how do I avoid one unsightly row of previous colour on the reverse side.? In a scarf, the reverse side is also seen.
