  • Meowy Christmas Scarf

Knit this reversible holiday scarf to celebrate Christmas with cats!

The Meowy Christmas Scarf is a cheery double knit holiday scarf featuring images of cats along with other Christmas and winter scenes. It’s a perfect scarf to wear or gift while celebrating the merry (meowy) holiday!

Double knit, the scarf is designed for three colors (a main color and two contrasting colors) and is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. It is similar in layout to A Purrfect Scare Halloween Scarf and Cat Season Scarf. The Christmas-themed sections alternate contrasting colors while the main color is used throughout. You can also stick with the traditional two-color scarf if you prefer.

The suggested colors are white, red, and green: white for the main color, red for the first contrast color, and green for the second contrast color, but feel free to substitute your own merry color combinations! Solid colors will work best due to the alternating color combinations in the design.

Instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The finished size of the scarf is approximately 70 inches (178 cm) in length and 5.5 inches (14 cm) in width.


  • Size 2 US (2.75 mm) needles.
  • Size 1 US (2.25 mm) needles (optional for a neater cast on edge).
  • Approximately 460 yards (421 m) of the main color in fingering weight yarn (white suggested).
  • Approximately 190 yards (174 m) of the first contrast color in fingering weight yarn (red suggested).
  • Approximately 285 yards (261 m) of the second contrast color in fingering weight yarn (green suggested).
  • Needle to weave in ends.

Note: If you prefer to use only two colors for the scarf, you’ll need approximately 460 yards (421 m) each of both colors.
