Measurements

This scarf is approximately 200cm long with the fringe and 12cm wide in its resting state.

Normally a pattern would specify the number of balls of a particular yarn you should use to make the item. I used pure wool for my scarves and took between four and five balls of wool. The quantities will vary depending on the number of colors you want to incorporate into the scarf.

Needles and Extras

To knit this footie scarf pattern, you will need a pair of 6.00mm single pointed needles (or the size required to give your the correct tension.

Tension

The tension for this scarf is 30 stitches and 21 rows for a 10cm square. As these patterns are based on a two by two rib, the tension is measured when the knitting is in it's resting state.

Finishing Your Scarf

If you are happy with your scarf the way it is, you have finished, but if you would like to add a special touch you can add a fringe.

To do this cut 16 pieces of yarn of each color about 12cm long.

To form a piece of the fringe take one strand of each color and fold them in half to form a loop. Using a crochet hook, draw the loop through the knitted fabric of your scarf and then draw the ends through the loop.

Pull the fringe knot tight.

Space eight fringe knots evenly across both ends of your scarf and you are done!
