The book in which this pattern is published is now out of print, but I am getting ready to release a revised and expanded edition with updated charts, redesigned patterns, rewritten text and a fresh layout. If you are interested in finding out when that’s available, please join my EDK announcement mailing list!

This pattern was the first thing I ever designed in double-knitting, and is still my most popular pattern. I attribute its success to its simple elegance and whimsy.

The original pattern was designed for my sister, who was at the time an amateur ornithologist with a particular interest in corvids -- crows, ravens, etc. It has been redesigned a couple of times since then and was included in my 2011 book “Extreme Double-Knittng” as an introductory pattern.

This is a great pattern for anyone who’s new to double-knitting. The chart is simple to follow, with few color changes per row, and when you are finished you will have an excellent foundation on which to build new double-knitting knowledge -- as well as a warm and stylish scarf for yourself or a loved one.
