The small version of this scarf is worked in a sport weight yarn, the large in worsted weight yarn. Other than the gauge at which they’re worked, which alters the scarf’s width, the only difference between them is their length. This means the scarf is easily customisable by adjusting yarn weight and length. Modifying the length will affect the amount of yarn required.

Small ~ Heavy fingering / sport weight.
MC: 230 yards CC: 180 yards.

Large ~ worsted weight yarn.
MC: 280 yards CC: 200 yards.

I’d recommend choosing semi solid or solid colour yarns with good stitch definition.

Pattern notes:
This scarf begins with a provisional cast on and is knit in the round. The textured ‘Hearts & Flowers’ edging is worked on each end and is finished with a picot bind off. The main body is worked using the larger needle, the lace and picot bind off is worked on the smaller needles.

I’d highly recommend using magic loop or two circular needles to work the hearts & flowers section of the scarf. This way each side of the scarf can be held on one side of the needle, which will be useful for keeping track of the pattern. It’s a good idea to read the pattern thoroughly before you begin.
