Backroad Scarves is one pattern, listed as an e-book to make sure your library is properly updated when you buy the pattern. Matching mitten and hat patterns are also available. You can purchase the set together for $14; discount automatically applied at checkout.

Errata: The cast on number for the worsted weight version should be 45, not 41. The current version has been corrected.

Designed to go with the Backroad Hats and Backroad Mittens, the Backroad Scarf uses slipped stitches and ribbing to create a warm, cushy fabric that is easy to make and works well with variegated, semi-solid, and solid yarns. Pattern includes instructions for two lengths of scarf and a shorter, buttoned cowl, and for three yarn weights: worsted, Aran (listed as Backroad Scarf - Aran) and bulky (listed as Backroad Scarf - Bulky). The pattern is listed as an ebook to avoid accidental duplicate purchases and to make sure your library shows each weight.

  • Widdershin Woolworks Targhee Worsted (100% Targhee; 200 yd 183m/3.14 oz 89g) 3 (3, 4) skeins or 438 yd (600 yds, 789 yds)/401m (549m, 722m)
