Color Block Scarf: Free Pattern

It’s bright. It’s cheery. It’s simple. and it’s Free! I was standing in line at the LYS this weekend when these colors caught my eye. I quick grabbed them before the cashier finished ringing up the rest of my purchases, and I cast on as soon as I got home. I’m a fan of color blocking and this idea screamed Kate Spade or Marc Jacobs to me.

I really wanted the colors to stand out on their own so I had to keep the stitch simple & what’s more simple than stockinette?

I know for some of you this is hardly needs a pattern, but I also know that there are plenty of readers who might not know where to get started. So for you, dear reader, I wrote it up real nice & purrrty for ya to download.

Also for you – the yarn to make it! I bought double the yarn I needed to make this, so I am giving it to one lucky reader. Leave a comment by end of the day today and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow!


In case you think I’m a little crazy for pairing these colors together (ahem…pink & red), I’m not. Look!

If the idea of weaving a bunch of ends in when knitting stripes haunts you while you sleep, please watch this video. It has changed the way I think about knitting stripes. I will be using this to join in any new skeins from here on out. The knot holds tight and it works right into the knitting so it’s virtually invisible! ‘So glad I found this video prior to starting this project!

  1. Nice job Kee! Great idea for a free pattern. Love the color choices. It is neat to brainstorm on other colors that would work too.

  2. What fun colors! The video about the knot is GREAT! Ive been knitting for years & I love learning new techniques-wish I would have known about this one sooner! Can’t wait to use this knot in my current project.

  3. Love the colors, thanks for the giveaway of the scarf because I’m busy knitting up your pillow pattern! :)

  4. What a fun scarf for spring! Thank you for including the video for the magic knot–can’t wait to knit something where I can try it out! (And then wow the others at our knitting group, hehe.) {Rav ID: nmujillybean}

  5. What a pop of springtime color~ delightful!
    Also, that video is brilliant. I think that will be my new go-to for joining yarn. I’ve been knitting for a decade and that is just the most clever join I have seen. Thanks!!! {it’s so nice to start off the day learning something new.}

  6. Very cute – you have a great eye for color combos. And you knit really fast too! perfect knit for our early spring weather in the Midwest!

  7. Thanks so much for the video! I’m having major issues with ends right now and hopefully this will help on future progects! Love the color combo!!

  8. Those colors are luscious! My daughters would love a bright scarf like this! One of my daughters started knitting a scarf and chose an army green color. She finished it , but then took a scarf from me that I had finished in bright red and purple! I loved your examples of those bright colors together. I am making a noro stripe scarf now where the stripes are created from the yarn changing color and using two different colors of the noro. It is very pretty, but in very calm colors. It would be fun to knit with your three bright, cheerful colors!
