Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Slipped stitches
  • Dropped stitches

Pattern Description:

So, true confession time. I've never been one for video games, and even with a smart phone of my very own, games aren't really a part of my daily grind. But, a few months ago, I installed an app called Tiny Tower on my I-pad, and I gotta tell you, I'm a bit hooked. As I was blocking out this scarf, my hubby Stefan exclaimed, "Tiny Tower!" I couldn't very well name the scarf after my newfound videogame obsession, but Skyscraper Scarf is a nod to my ever-growing Tiny Tower.


16 stitches = 4"/10 cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One size fits most. Approximately 5"/13 cm wide and 69"/176 cm long, without fringe. Measured after blocking.
