Rainbow Dreams Scarf


Rainbow Dreams Scarf

Beginning and experienced knitters alike will enjoy the Rainbow Dreams Scarf pattern. The simple construction of this scarf makes it a great pattern for beginners, while its wide array of colors makes this a great pattern for people who need to clear out their stash. You can easily modify this pattern to suit any type of yarn you have on hand, or any particular color scheme you like.


Yarn Weight(2) Fine (23-26 stitches to 4 inches)


  • 601-660 Bonbons Yarn: Celebrate ball       
  • Lion Brand Knitting Needles- Size 5 [3.75 mm]        
  • Lion Brand Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)


    22 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.
    BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

With hot pink, cast on 30 stitches.
Knit 5 rows.
Row 1: Knit first 4 stitches, purl across to last 4 stitches, knit last 4 stitches.
Row 2: Knit across.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until almost all hot pink has been used. Change to dark blue and continue to repeat Rows 1 and 2 until almost all dark blue has been used.
Continue as established, repeating Rows 1 and 2 and changing color as each is used up as follows: pea green, light blue, emerald, peach, purple, red. Work until final color block (red) measures about 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) less than previous color blocks. With red, knit 4 rows.
Bind off.

With large-eyed blunt needle, weave in ends.

Bonbons yarn is actually a 2 weight yarn, but i like the idea of using 4 better, I shall use this as a stash buster for all my leftover 4 yarn. Thank you.
