SGS Scarf Pattern

SGS Scarf

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.

SGS Scarf Pattern - Jaceycraft 2011

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.

He. kills. me.

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!

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment here or email me!

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

  16. I love, love, love your scarf! Congratulations on writing your first pattern and thank you for sharing it! I wear yellow too (although I am not sure that I should) and the color of your scarf is the color of my bedroom! I had the color custom made from a picture of autumn in Tuscany.

  18. Lovely! And that color is fabulous!

    Now you've inspired me to actually get my pattern finished. Maybe I can even finish it before a work project gets really crazy.

  25. Thank you for the FREE pattern. I am storing up some knit and crochet patterns. I only quilt right now but have aspirations to one day do yarn work. I even bought a large load of yarn from the local craft store. Still fearful. Wish I knew a knitter I could sit next to and learn the basics.
