Team Sport Scarf

So here it is. . . my very first my own pattern. Nothing too complicated, but I'm happy with it.

Team Sport Scarf

My family lives in Steeler Country and bleeds black and gold. I just knew I would need to knit up some scarves to show off our team colors during those cold winter in the 'Burgh games. This is the one that I knit up for my sister-in-law.

· I used 4 skeins of Lion Brand Microspun, two each of the team’s colors. There was almost ½ of each skein left, so depending on the length of your scarf, you might be able to use just 1 skein of each.
· Size 10 needles
· Darning needle

Gauge doesn’t matter.

Pattern was knit up holding two strands of yarn together.

Starting with team color #1, cast on 20 sts.

Work in Garter for 10 rows.

Row 11: K1, *YO, K2T*, rep from * to * until 1 st rem, K1
Row 12: K across
Row 13: K1, *K2T, YO*, rep from * to * until 1 st rem, K1
Row 14: K across
Row 15-16: repeat rows 11-12

Work in Garter for 10 rows.

Change to team color #2 and repeat pattern.

Continue changing colors and work pattern until desired length of scarf.
Bind off.

Congratulations on your first pattern! It is beautiful, although I would have to knit it in either Columbia Blue/Gold, Maroon/Silver, or SeaHawk colors. I just got the reminder of how I needed to be finishing up your swap package, oh my how time does fly! It is tea weather in my area, and if you are wearing a scarf, it is tea weather in your area too!
