Treads & Tracks Scarf – New Free Pattern

I finally finished making this scarf and writing the pattern.  I got a hat from Gap that I love, but I could not find any gloves or scarf to match.  At Windy Knitty I found some wool that MountainTop Crestone by Classic Elite Yarns is also very warm!  I started with the gloves, an adaptation of Treads, which you can see in the picture above or on my post Seriously Warm Gloves.  I create a pattern fro a scarf to match the gloves and I am pretty pleased with the results.

You can also  find the pattern at Raverly, or download the pattern here.

    Thanks for visiting my page and liking my blog. I hope you will be back soon 🙂

    What a beautiful pattern for a scarf! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I am going to book mark it as I think it will be my next knitting project!

    Funnily enough when writing my post on scarf patterns I hunted around for this one but I could not find it. I was then forced to search the general internet.

    It wasn’t until your recent post that I was able to track the pattern down!

    I am so dissapointed as I loved this pattern and am tempted to but a new set of needles and start it! Either way – it will be made soon.

    I hope you don’t mind if I feature it on my blog sometime soon as a new project.

    Thanks a million for the pattern!
