To all my knitting friends who have followed and knit the Gallatin,
I wrote the Gallatin Scarf pattern back in 2013, I knew it was a good pattern, but as it turns out it was a GREAT pattern! I was happy to offer it for free and let everyone enjoy making Gallatin scarves for themselves, family and friends. I also encouraged those who sell knitted goods that it is fine to make and sell as many Gallatin Scarves as they want. Over the years as the Gallatins’ popularity grew so did my attention to answering emails, blogs comments, Ravelry, Craftsy, and Etsy comments, etc. I try to answer everyone as best as I can.
I also spend a good deal of time every month defending my copyright. It seems as though having a “free” pattern online makes people think they can just post your copyrighted material on any website they want.

So after 4 1/2 years of being a free-to-everyone pattern, I have decided to charge a nominal fee. I hope to have more control over the copyright issue and be able to continue (and perhaps be better with), pattern support.

I hope you will understand and I hope the Gallatin Scarf pattern will continue to bring enjoyment to knitters and recipients of the finished scarves for many years to come.

“Gallatin Scarf” named after the beautiful Gallatin Valley where I live, it is the first scarf in a series of 3 to be published on my blog. Worked from the bottom up, this scarf works up fairly quickly using worsted weight yarn and size 10 1/2 needles. A simple repeat in the pattern makes this fairly mindless - a great car project.
My finished scarf was approximately 82” x 10”.

This pattern was fully tested by a great team of testers here on Ravelry.

I didn’t even block mine, just lightly steamed the stockinette/reverse stockinette stripes to get them to lay a bit flatter.

As with all my patterns, feel free to make and sell as many as you’d like.
These make great craft show items.
