About the Pattern

Turtle Beach Scarf is designed to use a blue gradient comprised of four different shades of blue that mimic the hues of the sea. Cute baby turtles travel along the scarf from the beach, out to sea among the waves, and then back to the beach again at the other end.

This double knit scarf is reversible, with inverted colors on the reverse side (mostly beach and a little ocean). Get creative with your color use for a more abstract scene!

The finished length as shown is approximately 72 inches (183 cm), but the scarf can also be knit to approximately 63 inches (160 cm). Instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The color work design is chart only, not written instructions.

Materials

  • Size 2 US (2.75 mm) needles.
  • Size 1 US (2.25 mm) needles (optional for a neater cast on edge).
