Snowflowers Scarf to Knit

Time to knit a cheery, fun scarf to wear in this cold, snowy weather. Here in northern Indiana we have had 101" of snow so far this season. (Normal is 66".)

Come knit some snowflowers and use up your scrap yarn. Each one will be different just like snowflakes!

Each snow flower is knit flat in garter stitch on two needles beginning with a crochet cast on at the outside edge. Simple decreases shape the points in short rows, then the the center is worked. (No wraps!) There is one small seam that is closed with garter stitch grafting. Easy!

Each 5" snowflower takes about 15 minutes to knit with 13 yarn on size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles. I used a 16" circular to hold all the stitches.

The pictured scarf was knit with two skeins of Noro Koromo (270 yards) which made 20 snowflowers. This is listed as an Aran or heavy worsted weight yarn.

Knit them individually and sew them together when you are done. Put them together however you like. I overlapped two points and tacked them together from the wrong side.

They are big enough to use as coasters too. :-)

You could knit these in any weight of yarn by changing the size of the needles to suit the yarn.

The three page pattern is available as a pdf download from my Ravelry pattern store for $3.00.

Wow - this is a stunning scarf! I absolutely love the finished look and the fact that you can use scraps and colors to get just the right look.
