Picture is hard to see what it really looks like.  Would like a bigger picture with more contrast, but what I can see looks darling.

Lovely scarf but after starting it in the round I found it much easier to frog that and begin the project in double knitting, I'm doing the pattern in a blue and cream and it's a perfect winter project and makes a wonderful warm scarf. Thanks for the snowflake and banding idea.

Hope this lovely scarf is chosen for the KAL.  Can I choose different yarns for the KAL?

Am I too persnickety? This doesn't look like Fair Isle to me (many bands of knitting, each of 2 colors and creating geometric patterns).

Isn't this closer to "nordic"? especially considering the dark colorway.

Dianne@6: The technique you're thinking of is called double knitting. SirBrunhilda's comment mentions it, calling it Doubleknit technique. There are tutorials online to show you how to do it. Just type in "double knitting" into Google or whatever search engine you use, and a whole bunch of different tutorials will come up. Good luck! I think this scarf would be a terrific candidate for double knitting. Maybe SirBrunhilda could post ideas on how to modify the pattern for the technique.

Nice pattern and color choices; however, I think that rather than working in the round I will make it using Doubleknit technique.  Thanks for sharing with us.

Thank you for making these free patterns easy to download. Much less frustrating than the free cardigans offered previously. Nice patterns too. Thanks again.

When I saw the picture, I was hoping for the pattern to be one of those double sided jackard style where the front has the opposite colorway as the back -- I don't know what that is called, but I have seen it a couple places and I am interested in learning how to do it.  Not that fair isle isn't nice, but reversible would be nice too.

Hello and tnak you for the pattern, I am going to use it to knit my sister-in law birthday present! ;)

Lovely as this seems, I can't see the detail for the brown sweater it is against. But I bet it's beautiful and I am going to try it. Eunny never steers us wrong. Thanks lots.
