This two-sided scarf is a great stash buster. It’s knit lengthwise and the fringe is formed as you knit. You can hone your kitchener stitch grafting skills in the bind-off or use a three-needle bind off. Any stripe sequence would work for this scarf, but a double rainbow is special and, well, what does it mean?1

This pattern assumes you know how to:

  • Use a temporary cast on
  • Perform a Kitchener stitch/grafting join or a three needle bind off.

You will need 2 skeins each of Comfy Worsted in:

  • Ivory
  • Coffee

And 1 skein each of Comfy Worsted in:

  • Peony
  • Pomegranate
  • Crème Brulee
  • Sweet Potato
  • Honey Dew
  • Jalapeno
  • Marlin
  • Planetarium
  • Lilac
  • Blackberry

Or similar yardage of another worsted weight yarn.
