Let It Snow Scarf
It’s winter, and there’s nothing I like better than a warm, snuggly scarf. Double knitting makes for a doubly-cozy thickness with the added bonus of the scarf being reversible.
As I experimented with the snowflake motif I liked the play of positive and negative space that emerged. And there’s a sweet little heart on each edge of the snowflake, which I find endearing.

MC: # 4285 Oceanic Mix (note the photos show the discontinued color #42104 Briny Deep), 3 skeins.

MC: #728 Dusty

The pattern uses charts, but is written with the less experienced knitter in mind, using the slip-stitch method. This means you only need to know how to knit, purl and slip stitches. With detailed instructions on how to use the charts, you can grab a pad of sticky notes and be all set to start stitching. Knitters who are experienced in working with any of the two-stranded-at-once techniques can certainly use those methods instead.
The pattern includes a sidebar with suggestions on how to “Make It Your Own”. It gives additional suggestions to inspire your own creativity.
