Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, increase, decrease, yarn over

Pattern Description:

The stylish Polka Spot Scarf is quick and easy-to-knit in a variety of yarn weights. It's wide asymmetrical triangle shape takes full advantage of the squishy garter stitch and maintains a nice drape of the finished fabric. While there is plenty going on in this pattern to keep experienced knitter's interested, it provides beginners an excellent opportunity to practice increasing, decreasing, yarn over's, and a sewn bind off.

This pattern is adaptable to many different weights of yarn, not just the two used. Have fun and experiment.

Fingering weight gauge - 16 sts in 4" of body pattern.
