PLEASE NOTE!! I can’t believe I didn’t see a huge typo on the cast on count. Cast on should be 36, NOT 16. So so sorry about that! If you are just now downloading the pattern, it has been fixed.

This is my very first written knitting pattern, so please be gentle on me! :) Enjoy!

This pattern is an adaptation of the ZickZack Scarf Pattern by Christy Kamm. I loved the pattern so much, that I wanted to write a new version using my own ColorMix Aran weight yarn. I changed the zig-zag section just a wee bit, and I’ve also added an i-cord edge, which hides the color changes and creates a nice tailored edge. The i-cord is the only thing that changes on your knit and purl side. The body of the scarf is one row you knit over and over. Super easy to memorize and great for social knitting or TV time. :)
