There are days in the winter when the sky is almost painfully blue, when the wind snaps the flags (and your hair) briskly, and the reflection of the bright sun against the snow makes your eyes water. This scarf helps cut that wind in a stylish and simple way. The vertical pleating created by the stitch pattern means you end up with a double-thick fabric that carries interest during the knitting as well as visually from a distance and up close. Don't like the pleats? Block the scarf to highlight the pennant pattern.
Gauge is not critical for this project.

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
