Recently I bought some software to help me with writing knitting patterns (Intwined Pattern Studio) and in addition to charting out a few new patterns, I’m also using it to revisit and spruce up some of my older, free (and most popular) patterns. The first one that I retooled is January is for Karen; it is now both charted and written, and available as a free Ravelry download.
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted (shown in “Jay Pond”)
Needles: US 7-8
Notes: I have a friend named Karen who lives in Glasgow; I do not get to see or talk to her nearly as much as I would like to. This scarf was my way of sending her a hug across the pond.
This pattern is very adaptable to modifications, including adding a 16-row repeat, changing yarn and needle size, or making longer by adding a second skein.
When I wrote this pattern in 2008, it was written only; recently I have updated this pattern to include a chart and to make it available on Ravelry.
