FIREFLY CHAI
Cinnamon Chai is hot. And so is this pattern! Give your neck the warmth of a dragon’s breeze. But beware. Do not play with fire. Your neighbor might burst into flames to get this irresistable scarf knitted by you :).
Firefly Chai is a very long scarf | shawl | wrap. Perfect for wrapping and wrapping and wrapping (size L). Let the scarf ends fly around you! This scarf is easily and fast knitted – featuring a beautiful, yet simple garter stitch wing-pattern and a border consisting of tiny flames. A perfect scarf for quickly changing your look – you never know who is looking out for you.
You can choose between two sizes, S and L. You just need one skein of sock yarn for S and two skeins for L. S is much shorter and could be a nice fast-knitted gift :). The pictures show size S in Cinnamon Chai. Size L can be wrapped two times around your neck.

This pattern is part of the ebook “The Chai Cooperation”. Expect some nice Chai-tea inspired yarns and patterns added soon ;).

ALTERNATIVES

  • Choose a more semisolid colorway.
  • Choose a variegated colorway for the garter stitch and a solid colorway for stockinette stitch (or vice versa). Be sure to start the variegated color in a RS row before the garter stitch section.
  • Leave out the flame border for those who like it simple and easy. Just add three (or more) garter ribs in pattern (do not forget the increases!) and bind-off with the sewn bind-off by Elizabeth Zimmermann or by loosely
