Often one of the first projects knitters take on, scarves are practically synonymous with knitting. A love note to this staple accessory, the Freya Scarf is an approachable but engaging project. Designed to be symmetrical, each end of this scarf features a two-color slip stitch motif and lovely lace motif that meets in the center. Build your skillset with a sampling of lace, slipped stitches, I-Cord selvedge, and grafting in pattern. Fantastic fringe is the finishing touch!

PATTERN NOTES This scarf is worked flat in two separate pieces, beginning at the ends and each working towards the center. The two pieces are joined at the center by grafting in the pattern stitch to create an invisible join. Each end features a two-color slip stitch pattern, and the center features a lace motif. It is bordered with an I-Cord selvedge that is created by slipping the last three stitches of each row. The scarf is finished with fringe.
