This scarf is cool but actually not too hard. The increases and decreases on each end give it the bias look. It was made using 1 skein of Dancing Leaf Farm Sock Hop Grey(373 yards), and 5 Mini Skeins of Sock Hop (100 yards each). Less than half of each mini skein was used, these were leftover from my other pattern “So Simple Shawlette”.

It is reversible, in that there is no right or wrong side. Each time there is a color change a seed stitch row is done so that each side looks good and very similar.

This was made out of a sock yarn, but you could use sport or heavier weight yard, and easily adjust the pattern to the width you desire.

Both sides have I-cord edges because I think that makes it sturdy, and it’s easy to hide the color changes in the I-Cord.

Once you start, in no time at all you won’t even need the pattern it is so easy, just keep knitting until you run out of yarn!

This is a 3 - 4 glass of wine while watching a movie pattern, which means its real easy to keep track of where you are and not make a mistake. And if you like t knit while exercising, this is perfect, I did it while on my elliptical, when the scarf got longer I could just drape it over the handles. I think 1 MC section was 30 minutes of exercise!

Note - this pattern will be free through May. Some printed copies will be available at the Dancing Leaf Farm booth at Maryland Sheep and Wool the first weekend in May. There will be plenty of Sock Hop and Mini Sock Hop skeins available.
