Sampler Scarf

This is a fun scarf pattern adapted from one I found on They designed the scarf almost twice as wide as my pattern below, but I really liked the idea of the sampler where you can practice different kinds of stitches, and it still makes a pretty scarf. I picked this yarn both because it was nice and soft and the higher acrylic content means it’s easier to wash and dry without worry. I almost always use circular needles rather than straight needles as I find my gauge and tension stay more consistent.
