Flyover Scarf - FREE pattern


Today I have another free pattern for you dear readers! I put this scarf together from some partially used skeins of sock yarn. It's nothing complicated, or challenging. (Hence the reason it is a free pattern). Surely others have some partially used skeins of sock yarn hanging around. It's not just me, right? Please tell me I'm right. So, since we all have this problem, I offer a solution.

I've given you the yarn types, colors, and amounts that I used, and the exact instructions to make your scarf just like mine. However, you probably do not have all the same sock yarn bits hanging around that I had, let alone in the same amounts. So, I hope you'll use this pattern to improvise a way to use up your own yarns. You can make each section longer or shorter. You can make your scarf wider. You can even make fewer or more sections using the same stitches. Make it yours!
This size is long enough to double. When doubled, it isn't tight around my neck, but it is a comfortable length that keeps my neck warm.

When you finish yours, please share photos on my Facebook page or on Ravelry! I love seeing photos of FOs from my patterns!

Please remember, if you want to share this pattern, share the link to my blog instead of copying the pattern. Thank you!

Happy stitching!
April
