Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit

Pattern Description:

The no-wrap short-rows and eyelets of this fun scarf create a fascinating pattern as color changes unfold beneath your needles. It's ideally suited to show off your favorite hand-painted yarn, and knitting to the "correct" gauge is not truly important. Together with the addictive nature of the stitch pattern, that might make this scarf the perfect project!


22 sts and 44 rows = 4" in garter stitch with sport-weight yarn and smaller needles. 20 sts and 40 rows = 4" in garter stitch with worsted-weight yarn and larger needles. 18 sts and 36 rows = 4" in garter stitch with heavy worsted-weight yarn and larger needles. Although you should always take the time to check your gauge, gauge is not crucial in this project as long as you are happy with the fabric you are creating with your yarn and your needles.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Sport-weight yarn: 5" wide x 56" long
  • Worsted-weight yarn: 6-7" wide x 44-56" long


  • DK-weight yarn (CYCA #5): 300 yds [274 m] OR worsted-weight yarn (CYCA #4): 198 yds [181 m]
  • US size 7 [4.5 mm] needles for sport-weight yarn or size needed to obtain gauge
  • US size 8 [5 mm] needles for worsted-weight yarn or size needed to obtain gauge
