A narrow scarf with a good length, knit out of soft and colorful wool, is the best accessory for reading in the park, for browsing the shelves of your favorite bookstore or library or on your way to the book fair. Almost magically, it makes us look sophisticated and well-read – don’t you think?

This pretty scarf is knit on the bias with a pretty zig-zag pattern that is created by working increases and decreases in a color-changing yarn: Use your own handspun or something (almost!) as pretty like “Edition 3” or Zauberball by Schoppel or “Lazy Lion” by Kremke Soul Wool. Depending on how long you would like your scarf, you will use between 100 and 150 g of yarn. You will need four stitch markers in two different colors and a crochet hook of suitable size, as you will crochet cast-on new stitches every now and then (I show you how that works in a video). So: Happy knitting and reading!

The pattern is available as a download on Ravelry and in Strickmich! Shop, where you will also find the matching yarn.
