New Pattern: Succession Scarf

The Succession Scarf is a quick and easy one skein project that makes the perfect accent to any outfit. The circles of the pattern make it interesting for both solid and multicolored colorways and the I-cord edging is knit on as the pattern is knit so there are no picking up stitches and it’s an updated edging to the traditional garter stitch scarf edge.

This project is great for a beginner knitter looking to expand beyond knits and purls and it is also the perfect pattern to show off a skein of hand spun yarn.
