Pattern Details

We all knit swatches to check our gauge, or to see how a stitch pattern looks in a particular yarn. And we usually unravel them before knitting the garment. Not here! This is a scarf of swatches (or sampler blocks), and you're the designer. You decide what weight yarn to use. You decide which blocks to knit. You determine the length of the finished scarf. Complete charts, written instructions and photos are provided for 34 sampler blocks, and each block has its own page. This is a BIG 44-page pattern. Choose a busy block when you have time, or a simple repeat when you're rushed. Most are easy knit/purl combinations suitable for a novice knitter. There are also 4 "picture" blocks (Cross, Heart, Home and Star) that require greater concentration. There's no need to get bored with a lengthy stitch pattern - in 40 or 42 rows you'll be trying another. Knit one or two blocks in a day, and in no time your scarf will be complete. Plus no two scarves ever need to be alike. Or knit an entire scarf in only one (or two) of the 30+ stitch patterns. This pattern is exceptionally versatile. It's a project that's meant to be fun, as well as a learning experience. Your results will be spectacular! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY CO, Knit, Purl, Slip 2 stitches purlwise, BO.

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.
