Autumn is finally here and I couldn't be more excited! Fall colors, pumpkins everywhere and most importantly, beautiful weather.
As temperatures start to cool down, I wanted to make my Fall yarn releases extra special and release a gorgeous new scarf pattern along with it.
The Sif Scarf features intricate details that are surprisingly simple to knit up. So, if you are a beginner, don't worry! This pattern is perfect for you and will teach you a few things that will come in handy for your knitting endeavors.
So, let's jump right in!
As always, this pattern comes to you written out and with a video tutorial to guide you through each step of the process. You can also purchase the print version in my shop here: Sif Scarf Pattern Printable.
If you would like to add the pattern to your Ravelry queue, you can find it here. Sif Scarf on Ravelry.
This pattern is free, but if you love it and would like to buy me a coffee, you can Venmo me @Tabetha-Moe. Coffee inspires me to make more patterns!
