Zick Zack Scarf

Pattern:  Zick Zack Scarf (free at
Yarn:  Mille Colori Baby
Needles:  Size 2 - Knitters Pride Karbonz

This pattern is very suitable for a beginner knitter.  I usually like to work on a simple pattern suitable for tv watching and another project much more complicated to keep the creative juices flowing. 

The pattern is a repeat of 8 stitches and every row is the same.  Can't get any simpler.  It does take awhile to visualize any progress when knitting on size 2 needles but in the end, it is satisfying. 

Because the pattern calls for two different color way selections, and the fact that each is variegated, you will never see two knitted scarves using this pattern that are identical.  

A little expensive at $15/ball, I justify the cost by the fact that I have no other vices but purchasing nice yarn. 

I recently purchased these specialty needles for small circular projects.  The needles are shorter and the cords are 16".  They are delightful to knit with and great for hats, socks, and tubular scarves.

Here is to link to purchase them.

Happy Knitting!


  1. It's amazing when something so beautiful is just one row, repeated many times. Knitting is wonderful, isn't it? 8)

  2. So beautiful. My question to you: how do you manage to see the variegated yarn on wooden needles that are also variegated? I can only use solid colored yarn when I use my Knit Picks Harmony needles.

  3. Actually, I used the Knitter's Pride Karbonz needles. They are not my favorite needles but they do work for this project.

  4. Very pretty--and I'm surprised, looking at it, thinking wait, I've never knit that pattern, I need to try that.

    I ogled those gorgeous needles at the Webs booth at Stitches Saturday and wished. So cool you got them!

  5. So good to see you posting again!! Beautiful scarf, and very lovely yarn :). I love wooden needles, how is the join when you are knitting?
