** Free pattern – Candy Scarf**

This is a super simple pattern, but looks a lot more complicated than it is!

Perfect for using up old stashes of different types of yarn.

A = Colinette Wigwam

B = Rowan Kidsilk Haze

Using A, cast on 20 sts.

  • Row 1: (A) K1, P 1 *(B) K1, P1, K1, P1, *(A) K1, P1, *(B) K1, P1, K1, P1, *(A) K1, P1, *(B) K1, P1, K1, P1, * (A) K1, P1. Repeat as for row 1 for the desired length of the scarf – (I did 215 rows), and cast off. *

When changing yarns, be sure to push the yarn just used to the top so the next yarn goes underneath. Otherwise, you’ll end up with loops in strange places!

N.B Its the changing of yarns that create the loops so make sure you change over each time or it will look uneven.

  • Along one of the very long or vertical sides of the scarf, pick up and knit as many stitches as rows using A

(so, i picked up 215 stitches). Knit 1 row, and cast off loosely. Repeat for the other side of the scarf.

  • Cut equal lengths of yarn; 1 of A and 2 of B for each fringe and using a crochet hook, loop through the ends of the scarf along each horizontal edge.

Wollah you have finished and are ready to hit the town.
