If you’d like to try KnitPicks’ new Chroma Worsted Weight Yarn, this is a great pattern to use! Cream-and-rainbow scarf was knitted with Chroma WW in “Prism” and “Natural,” two skeins of each color.

A trellis-like stitch pattern frames an autumn red background in this simple scarf. Inspired by the vine-covered garden archway of the same name, the Pergola Scarf is an easy pattern that produces dramatic results.

Each layer is worked separately, then the two layers are joined with a round of single crochet. The open stitch pattern works up quickly, while the backing offers easy going with alternating rows of single crochet and double crochet. Both written instructions and a chart are provided for the open stitch.

The two layers create eye-catching detail without sacrificing warmth. This scarf is the perfect accessory for crisp, cool fall days and gray winter mornings.
