Is it too early for a Halloween scarf?  Never! 


I used sport-weight orange and black yarn and the double-knitting technique to create this scarf.  It's 6 feet long, about 8 inches wide, and features a bat on each end and two color changes where the colors "bleed" into each other.  Colors are reversed on either side. 

Sadly, I gave this scarf away!  I guess I will have to make another one for myself (once the memory of what a PITA it was fades).

Thanks for Looking!

This is a really cute and well thought out pattern!

I have to admit, I've never tried the double knitting technique because it does seem a bit tedious and time consuming... but then I see such cute things like this and it seems that the finished project is well worth it!

There is something heartwarming about seeing Halloween things in the middle of the year.  Whoever you gave this to is the luckiest person in the world!  I'm quite envious!  ^_~
