Spring Meadow Scarf
We are adding the pattern to your Knitting Patterns.
This pattern has been saved to My Knitting Patterns.
It can be so hard to find knit scarf patterns that are light and lacy enough for the warmer months, so when you find a pattern like this, you have to seize the moment. Knit yourself a Spring Meadow Scarf for the most stunning lacy addition to your wardrobe in years. Nothing quite beats the blues, grays and greens of this yarn, reminiscent of a quiet pond on a lazy day. This scarf is knit in five lovely sections and four transitions that seamlessly join them together.
Knitting Needle Size8 or 5 mm
Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
Gauge1 stitches, 2 rows, 3 inches. stockinette stitch
