Spring Meadow Scarf


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.
