My friend Annie is an avid knitter. She’s more of a knitting ninja – she wears her needles down to near stubs because of her always-popular Harry Potter scarves.
In the past few years it seems all of her friends are procreating because she makes a baby blanket nearly every month. I shared her adorable feather and fan lovey a couple of years back and when she posted a scarf with a similar pattern on her Etsy shop yesterday I asked if I could share the pattern.
Here’s what she put together:
The England Scarflette

I cannot possibly be expected to travel any sort of distance without at least one knitting project in hand. Last week I plane, trained and automobiled my way to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, England and had some lovely yellow ochre yarn with me. I have challenged myself to not buy any yarn this year unless I need it for a specific project (this came after several episodes of Hoarders. God. I love that show. Read: please don’t let that be me.) and this lovely bit happened to be leftover from a feather and fan baby blanket I made for a friend.
- Cast on 42 stitches on a size 7 round needle and knit 10 rows
- K3, K2 tog 3 times, yo 6 times, K2 tog 6 times, yo 6 times, K2 tog 3 times, K3
- Knit the next 2 rows
- K3, Purl row, K3
- *Slip the first stitch of each row as if you were knitting
Oh look! Baby yarn factories!!
I made this pin years and years ago but have never had the perfect thing to do with it. Until now. I love how these pieces go together.
And what is the next project you ask? A grey scarf similar to this with yarn I bought in England. Why did I buy it? Because I had finished this beauty and could not possibly be expected to travel without something to knit! I think that’s a rule at US Customs or something….Really. Look it up.
