This 17-page digital download knitting pattern creates a scarf in 3 sizes. A vibrant, soft yarn with a sheen and long color changes is showcased in this modular pattern, which creates a lovely scarf with a cascade of colors. Instructions are also given for a Zigzag Scarf variation which uses 2 colors of solid colored yarn.

The pattern includes illustrated written instructions for creating the scarf in three sizes, with several variations, as well as photo tutorials on the Chain Cast On, Gwennie’s Increase (a different kind of M-1), picking up stitches purlwise, and the Centered Double Decrease.
