Free Knit Pattern-- Earl Grey Scarf




Introducing the first free knit pattern of year 2020: The Earl Grey Scarf.

The free knit Earl Grey Scarf pattern is a beautiful gender neutral scarf that uses the eyelet lattice insertion stitch. I wanted to design a scarf that would suit my grandfather so I planned on a criss-cross look and I am very pleased by it's turn out. 

Growing up in a Korean home, my brother and I were taught to bring a box of fruit or some food to offer to the people we were visiting. (When I lived in Korea to teach, parents always brought a little gift or something yummy to eat; this may have been when my donut obsession began as it was a common snack that was gifted.) This past Christmas I decided to bring him something handmade. As the years go by, we've noticed that his appetite for food has dwindled a lot. My father mentioned that food goes bad in the fridge all the time because my grandfather just cannot finish the food that is bought. So this year, I gifted him the Earl Grey Scarf.

I love how you can wear a traditional scarf in so many different ways. The pictures I took for this scarf, I wore it the two most common ways I like to wrap my scarf.  But trust me, there are still so many different ways to use your scarf.

I hope that this free knitting pattern finds you well and that you'll be interested in making one for yourself.
