A scarf for a girl who’s not a teenager yet, but outgrowing the little princess frou frou. Polka dots and big stitches from a chunky yarn strike a good balance for a girl who’s growing, but not growing up too fast. It’s a very quick knit, even though it does involve basic intarsia. In fact, if you’re new to intarsia, this is a great project to start learning!

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is worked in intarsia from color charts. It is recommended to wind each skein into two balls.

  • Each row of the color charts is two rows of knitting. The body of the scarf is worked in garter st, and the dots are worked in St st (k right side, p wrong side).

  • This pattern uses ALL of Color A. Be conservative with yarn as you break or attach balls. If you find you are running out of a color, switch Colors A and B for added polka dot fun. If you prefer to work the pattern to the end without switching colors, buy two balls of Color A to make sure you have enough!
