A sweet pattern for a gifty, fun to knit scarf full of color and robust stitches. The circles could be lollipops, or they could be arty trees.

The Pop Scarf takes one or two skeins of fingering weight or heavy fingering, such as Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock mediumweight (depending on whether you want to knit it in 1 or 2 colors.)

The lollipop sticks/tree trunks are knitted into the fabric using a twist stitch. The circles are bits of recycled sweaters, but you may also use cotton fabric for a more fray-ish look. It’s a keyhole design, with a garter section behind the neck for added warmth and stability.

The pattern is an automatic download of a 5-page .pdf. It includes row-by-row instructions for the pop sections, brief notes about searching out and felting sweaters, and a note as to how to lengthen the scarf for those who wish. The skills needed are basic knit and purl stitches, plus a left twist stitch, which is described in the pattern document.
