My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.

Pattern Notes

For best results, wet block your scarf after completion. For a video demonstration of wet blocking, check out this resource:

All About Blocking

To customize the size of the scarf, simply knit in pattern until it measures the desired length. Work through row two and work the bind off on a row one (right side row).

For assistance with the cast on process, have a look at my video demonstrating the long tail cast on:

For assistance with the cast off, have a look at my video demonstrating the simple bind off:
