Hello from Amsterdam!

I’m very excited to blog about this pink scarf that I made for myself because I am very excited about the scarf.  I’ve been wearing it everywhere, and not just because it’s cold outside.  This scarf is so fun and cutesy and soft and warm and I made it for myself all by myself.

I found the free pattern at The Tricksy Knitter which is a super cute and informative website that I just happened to stumble across on google.

Things you will need:

  • Two or three balls of bulky yarn
  • Size 8 (5.0mm) knitting needles
  • Scissors
  • Needle for weaving in the ends


  • Cast on 25 stitches
  • Rows 1-4: Knit.
  • Row 5: *Knit 2 together, yarn over; repeat from * until 1 stitch remains on left needle, knit 1.
  • Rows 6-9: Knit.
  • Rows 10, 12, 14: Purl.
  • Row 11, 13: Knit.
  • Repeat these 14 rows, ending with row 9, until scarf is the desired length.
  • Cast off.

Here are four fun ways to wear this fancy-dancy scarf when you’re walking across European bridges :

In addition to being pretty, the stripes of garter stitch help keep the scarf from rolling too much, which is what happens when you make a whole scarf out of stockinette stitch (like the one that I made for my boyfriend a few posts back).

I hope you’re staying warm wherever you are out there in the world.

Tot ziens!
