An ice skater’s pretty pirouettes come to mind in the swirling cable pattern of this scarf or wrap in three sizes (petite scarf/tall scarf/wrap). Worked in a luxurious fingering weight blend with a bit of sheen, the motif is highlighted with eye-popping depth and detail. The intertwining shapes are built with simple cable crosses and finished at each end with deep ribbed hems. These pieces are easily resized and may be knit in different yarn weights with needle adjustments. Spoil your favorite person by knitting a gift of Ice Sparkles in a special trophy yarn or make yourself a snuggly wrap with a soft, wooly option in a comforting natural shade.
The Ice Sparkles pattern is part of the design collection for our 11th annual Red Scarf scholarship fundraiser! All proceeds from the sale of this pattern through December 31, 2021 are applied directly to our scholarship fund, administered by Foster Care to Success.
This Red Scarf scholarship pattern sample in the tall scarf size is knit in Bare Naked Wools Festivus 6.0 Fingering (Merino/Cashmere/Silk) in the limited-edition, custom colorway Rudolph. A portion of Festivus yarn sales go directly to the scholarship fund.
