I have to say, I've always had aspirations to write my own patterns.
Then Rachel gave me the push I needed when she asked me to contribute to Celebrate Color. I was thrilled, and a little scared. I originally started this scarf pattern back in June, but when I made a trade on Ravelry for this gorgeous wool/alpaca blend in my favorite color of the season, well, I was inspired. I love, love, love this shade of yellow. And I didn't think I could wear the shade, but I think it works!
I'm proud to share with you this free scarf pattern.
I hope there are more patterns in my future.
You can click on the link to download the free pattern, or you can also find it on ravelry later today.
Thanks to Rachel for the push that I needed!
I hope you will try out this pattern. If you do, I'd love to see!
I think the gathered stitches make such a great texture! The pattern is easy enough that you can probably knit one up quickly as a gift. And don't be intimidated if you're new to knitting; this pattern only uses: knits, purls, K2Tog (knit two together), and KFB (knit front and back). I recommend Knitting Help if you need help with these stitches.
And here's a shot of me (and the scarf) with the cutest kid ever.
Oliver (Elliott's nephew) is so sweet and special to me!
I used a DK weight yarn for this scarf, but a worsted weight will work just fine!

Thanks for checking out my first pattern. I hope you enjoy it!
