Dragon Scale Keyhole Scarf: Free Pattern!

Now you can make a cozy scarf for the colder weather. Made of worsted/aran weight yarn, it knits up quickly, and all you need to know is how to knit, purl, cast on and bind off. It makes a great last-minute gift, too!

The "keyhole" element is a slit you make down the center of the scarf, so you can tuck one side into the other and secure the scarf around your neck. Download my original pattern by cliking HERE, send me a photo when you're done, and enjoy!

Is this scarf reversible, ie do the back and front sides look the same (or nearly so)?

Nothing happens when I click to download the keyhole scarf pattern. I'd really appreciate it if you could email a copy to konoctilady@yahoo.com. It's such a rich-looking scarf. The stitch is something I've never seen before, and the keyhole is a great idea. Thanks

No matter what I've tried I can't print the pattern, only the 2 pictures come up. I realize I have had problems in the past that are usually "user error" but nothing I do will work. Can it be e-mailed to me?

I love this pattern and downloaded it fine, but could you please email me the exact yarns you used because I can't work it out and I love them...my email address is

sherlock.ding@hotmail.co.uk

Thanks :)

This is for the person who e-mailed me re someone emailing her the DRAGON pattern(your email was deleted in error) Yes, it was e-mailed to me by Holly Klein, which I certainly appreciated but I still couldn't print it. With the original and what she sent I could print the photos but no verbiage, so I gave up until I have enough patience to hand write the instructions, etc. I tried restructuring the pages but nothing except the photos worked!~ I'm sure it's user error but I can't figure it out. If you e-mail me again I will forward what Holly sent me and maybe you'll have better luck!

I've never had so much fun! I love this pattern! I am using Loops & Threads Charisma, mulitcolor self-striping and it is turning out gorgeous! It's a little wide for a scarf in my opinion, I'll just cast on less stitches next time. Scarf or wrap, it's beautiful!

Victory Lee said...

Wow I live in Minnesota cold most of 8 months out of the year and a cold neck is the worst thing so I am big on knitting scarves, simple to cmplicated. This is so pretty, I am not sure why other folks who are having a problem downloading this I had to trouble at all, you just have to look for the highlighted type that says download here...so pretty, it is spring here now so that will give me plenty of time to knit this on rain soaked summer days and prep for the never ending winter....Thanks for sharing this is beautiful and looks so warm! Sincerely, Victory

Victory Lee said...

Well my typing was horrible I forgot to check....I really can spell, but no matter to the scaef and the creator, still lovely.
Sincerely Victory Lee (bad speller from Minnesota)

Oh for PETE SAKE! Victory Lee here again, I got A's in school for spelling, it is this stupid computer that cannot spell or read my mind...I can knit better than I can type and once again, thank you for sharing your pattern!

Sheri said...
