Pattern Details

Knit a raccoon or red panda scarf for a child or adult. Worked in garter stitch and ribbing, it's a perfect pattern for an advanced beginner. You'll need to know how to Cast On, Bin d Off, Knit, Purl, Increase (KFB), Decrease (K2tog & SSK). The ears are attached with a 3-Needle Join, instructions included. Except for the face, you’ll be measuring inches rather than counting rows. It’s a great take-along project for knitters on-the-go. The pattern has lots of photos, plus graphs and written instructions for each face. Also included are gift tags for you to print. A raccoon scarf requires 3 yarn colors, a red panda 4. Use plain plied yarns in DK or worsted weight such as Red Heart Supersaver or Classic, Canon Simply Soft, Vanna, etc. (Most of the samples were knit in Red Heart Supersaver.)

Recommended with this pattern

  • US#8 Straight needles
  • 1 or 2 stitch holders for ears
  • 2 buttons for eyes

Sold by

I've retired from a wonderful career in graphic design and now spend my time volunteering for local animal-related organizations -- from fostering tiny kittens for adoption to assisting visitors at Seattle's award-winning Woodland Park Zoo. My knitting experience goes back decades, and includes co-authoring the now classic how-to book "The Knitters Guide To Sweater Design," published by Interweave Press. Almost all of my knitting goes to help non-profit groups, especially my "cat hats" which are sold at fairs and special events. All proceeds from these patterns go directly into the PayPal account of South County Cats, an amazing all-volunteer non-profit that provides free and low cost spay/neuter, TNR (trap. spay/neuter and rescue/release) of feral felines, plus foster/adoption of adoptable kittens and cats.
