Small and Simple Scarf

Small and Simple Scarf

"I have been having so much fun making these little scarves! They are simple and quick to finish, perfect knitting while on a Netflix marathon. I also think they are quite stylish, and look great on everyone! I made the one shown above using Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed. Once I finished it, I started one in a beautiful white, made from her Cashmerino Aran Yarn. This pattern will knit wonderfully in any Aran weight yarn you love."

Clicked on "The Penny Scarf" where I was apparently supposed to download the pattern - nothing happened. I really appreciate bloggers who not only offer the download, but also provide the total pattern on their blog. This one doesn't.

I tried to print pattern, could you please email me a copy - thanks!

I used to make these for seniors. they loved them.

I tried numerous times and am unable to print pattern, could you please e mail me a copy and I wil try that. thanks for your help appreciated.

Oh, thats a cute scarf. I like this version very much. The length is perfect for wearing as an accessory to your outfit instead of maybe a necklace. If you work in a chilly office environment it could help keep you warm without being to heavy like a full scarf. If is very stylish. Yarn texture and weight could be changed easily.

This is an interesting little neck scarf pattern, almost like a cravat or ascot. No fancy tying or knot needed, though, to keep it in place. I could see this in a solid color matched to a shirt or jacket, or even white or black, to add to the look of an outfit.

The instructions are a little confusing but the pattern is a good stash buster. Always looking for small projects to bring on the bus and train on the way to work. This will work.

I love this little scarf because I am short and full-figured and longer scarves just accentuate this. This scarf calls your eye to the face and would make any outfit look very put-together. This one's a keeper!

Pattern will not print

Hello! Once you click on the pink "Click here for knitting pattern" button on this page, you will need to click "The Penny Scarf" link on the designer's blog - beneath where it says "Click this link to download a PDF version of our pattern." Once you have clicked "The Penny Scarf" link, you will be taken to another page and you will once again need to click the link that says "The Penny Scarf." Once you do so, a PDF of the pattern should download and you will be able to print the PDF. Hope this helps! -Kathryn, Editor of AllFreeKnitting

Too bad, it was easy to get the pattern.
