About the Pattern

What makes a great story? “Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles.” Inspired by one of my all-time favorite movies, The Princess Bride, the Storybook Love Scarf brings to life the type of love you might find in a storybook, the kind worth fighting for.

Double knit, the scarf is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique. There are two options for the lettering. Included are traditional double knitting charts for the lettering, which result in backwards text on one side of the scarf. However, the pattern also includes charts for non-mirrored lettering, legible on both sides of the scarf. The color work design is chart only, not written instructions.

The scarf is approximately 65” (165 cm) in length, but can easily be increased or decreased. The width of the scarf is approximately 5.25” (13.3 cm).


  • Size 2 US (2.75 mm) needles.
  • Size 1 US (2.25 mm) needles (optional for a neater cast on edge).
  • Approximately 400-425 yards (366-389 m) each of two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn for a scarf of length 65” (168 cm). The scarf can be easily increased or decreased in length.
  • Needle to weave in ends.
