This is a beautiful and very simple granny square scarf, instead of a traditional fringing, tiny circles have been added to the edges for a quirky twist. Each shade of Ramsdale is named after a Yorkshire village. I originally chose the colours to mark the places I have visited with my husband on our annual visit to North Yorkshire.
Size: Length:155cm Width: 16cm (this can be adjusted by altering the number of granny squares you make). Note that the weight of the scarf will stretch the squares and after adding fringing the overall length will be closer to 180 cm
You will need to make 75 squares in total
Each square measures 6cm x 6cm after blocking. Make your first square and adjust hook size if necessary.

Pattern begins here :
• Each motif is worked in a single colour. After the first motif the squares are joined using a simple slip stitch join which is described below. You can find some step by step photos illustrating this method at the end of the pattern.
