Anthro-Inspired Scarflet

There is a very cute scarf available at Anthropologie right now - Le Petite Scarf. Well, Kim from Chronic Ennui worked up a free Ravelry pattern . I can't tell the difference. I love this pattern. You can dress it up or down and totally make it your own. Kim knit several examples and they are all cute. I chose to follow her lead and make a flower pin that I attached, but the scarf can also be worn without it.


Details:
Pattern: Anthro-Inspired Scarflet
Designed by: Kim from Chronic Ennui
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool 100% merino superwash, 2 skeins color 006
Needles: US size 8 straight
To make the flower: Cast on 47 stitches.
Row 1 - *P1, yo, P2tog* repeat to last 2 sts, P2.
Row 2 - Purl
Row 3 - *K2tog* repeat to last stitch K1.
Row 4 - *P3tog* repeat to end
Row 5 - K3tog, K2tog, K3tog (3 sts)
Cut yarn leaving a 10" tail, with tapestry needle run tail through stitches on needle. Coil flower as desired, (Optional: I added a button to the middle using the tail), take a few stitches and fasten with tails to safety pin.

Thanks Kim!

No, thank you! It looks great with your fabulous pin! Can you believe Anthropologie had the nerve to sell ACRYLIC!? Even so, it's still my favorite store!
