The snowflake motif sprinkled at each end of this scarf has a traditional Nordic look that transports us to snowy fields and alpine vistas. It’s worked in the round from both ends, then grafted in the center so that the wee v’s of lice stitch face the right direction on both sides! This scarf has double the thickness, double the warmth, and easily hides the strands from your colorwork. Plus, the drifting flakes and flurries are handsome for both him and her!

We chose two colors from the sweeping color palette of Brooklyn Tweed Arbor. Firmly spun at a DK-weight, Arbor is a classic workhorse of a yarn that is entirely produced in the United States. The round, 3-ply composition creates firm fabric with great stitch definition and light, woolly softness—and it makes a soft, bouncy scarf perfect for a day filled with flurries!


FINISHED SIZE
Approx. 9”/23cm across (half the circumference) x 52”/132cm long, after blocking.
Note: Scarf is knitted in the round as a tube, making it easy to knit and double warm to wear.

YARN
6 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (145 yds/132m each): 5 in Main Color (MC), 1 in Contrast Color (CC). Shown in MC Kettle and CC Hammock.
Or, approx. 835 yds/663m total of an equivalent DK-weight yarn: 725 yds/663m in MC and 110 yds/100m in CC.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS

Note: If you find your gauge is different on the solid color section, you may change needle size so it more closely matches the stranded two-color section.

Darning needle to finish.
