Tomato Palindrome Scarf
Free knitting patterns for scarves don't have to be complicated in order to make a statement. Knitwear designer Carol Sunday proves this theory to be correct in her gorgeous design for a simple Tomato Palindrome Scarf. Consisting of only one row of repeated knitting, this scarf uses wide ribs in the center and narrow ribs along the edges to create a sophisticated look without any cables or lace.
