  • Into the Woods Scarf

Knit this nature-inspired forest scarf for the hiker or outdoorsy person in your life!

The Into the Woods Scarf was inspired by my days of backpacking in the Sierra Nevada mountains. A trail leads into a forest, which gives way to hills and mountains with the sky above. It’s the perfect scarf for cold nights camping or when you want to carry the beauty of nature with you.

Double knit, the scarf is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The scarf is approximately 66” (168 cm) in length, but can easily be increased or decreased. The scarf is approximately 5” (12.7 cm) wide. The color work design is chart only, not written instructions.
