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. Of course , we would love for you to purchase some yarn from us, so you can do that through the links below. But we are giving you the pattern for FREE.

Here is a sneak peek of the white one I am working on now, what do you think?!
I came across this scarf as I was switching out my summer wardrobe for my winter one. I made this scarf a couple of years ago, and had totally forgotten about it. I totally fell in love with it all over again! I remember that this was really easy, but it looks very complicated. We still sell the yarn and I still had the pattern, so I am going to share it with you! Anything very chunky will work, preferably you will want something with a gauge of 2-3 stitches per inch on #11 or #15 needles. This scarf took (2) 100 gram hanks, but you could use more or less depending on the length that you would like. You will love this scarf!

This scarf is one of my very favorites! I wear it all of the time!! If you are a little scared by cables but want the fancy look of them, this is a great pattern. It is very easy to make, and I love the look. I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk yarn, but any Aran weight yarn will give you the same look. You will need 2 to 3 balls depending on how long you like your scarves, I used 3 50 gram balls. I added fringe, but that is optional.Enjoy!
Mock Cable Scarf
I brought out this scarf today to keep warm in the newly frigid temperatures around here. I forgot how much I like it! So I thought I would share the pattern with you. I actually made a few of these last year, and no matter what color or yarn I chose, I was really pleased with the result. The pattern looks more complicated then it is, and knits up really quickly. I held together a basic Aran weight wool blend and a fine angora that changed colors slightly to make the scarf shown here. But I also made a few of them with only the wool blend, both turned out wonderfully. I also like my scarves really long, so you may not need as much yarn as the pattern calls for. Have fun!
The Peacock Scarf
UPDATE: I have recently started re-making this scarf in an entirely different yarn for a totally different look. Check it out here:

I did take my needles down about 2 sizes to a #6, but used the exact same pattern with no other changes. We have also added a You Tube video that is very helpful with row 3 that you can find in this post.

The Farrow Rib pattern is one of my favorites to knit. It has a really nice rythym to it, and is easy enough to knit while watching TV ( which I will be doing a lot of the next few days because I finally joined the 21st century and have TIVO ! I am so excited to watch the Golden Globes without commercials!!!) .It is also a really beautiful pattern! Above is a scarf I am making from Karabella’s Soft Tweed. Isn’t the color amazing? The pattern below is for the exact scarf that I am making, but you can easily change the pattern, It just needs to have K3, P1 across and always end with an extra K1.
