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.
