Color Me Pretty Scarf is the fourth design in the Color Me Series of fun Fair Isle garments that I have been making for my daughter Maya.

The colorwork is simple enough for a beginner, yet interesting enough for a seasoned knitter as well. The scarf is worked entirely in the round.

The Fair Isle design lends itself to many possibilities of various color combinations; my version is just one of them. You can work with as little as two contrast colors or with as many as you would like.

The pattern is written for two weights of yarn - DK/Sport and Fingering.
