Building Blocks: Scarves
This #KWBuildingBlocks design is one of the only scarf patterns you’ll ever need! Laid out a little differently than our other Kelbourne Woolens designs, this pattern is a little more word-heavy and breaks down some of the intermediate-level techniques in order to make the knitting easy and enjoyable. The hope is that you not only learn something along the way, you end up with a fabulous scarf – or scarves – as well!
A scarf can be worked on straight needles, or you can use a circular needle and work back and forth. It’s really just a matter of convenience or personal preference.
