Free Knitting Pattern: Catania Super Long Scarf

This scarf is supersoft and super long, and can double up as a shawl as well.

The Catania Super Long Scarf is easy to make, utilizing mainly the Garter Stitch and a simple yarn-over at regular intervals for added visual interest. The scarf features a tapering edge with the cast-on edge longer than the bind-off edge.

The scarf is made with the softest merino wool sock yarn, hence it is lightweight and very cushy to the touch. The colors used in this scarf are self-striping, hence taking the guesswork out of trying to match colors.

This scarf will provide ample warmth for those cool Spring and Fall evenings.
