The Striped Cake Scarf uses the color changes of cake yarn to determine when it’s time to change stitches. It’s fun and easy to make.

Once you get going you won’t need the pattern, so it’s great for on-the-go knitting. This scarf is a good length and is rather wide so there are a lot of ways it can be styled. Choose a brightly colored yarn cake and bring some joy everywhere you go!

Getting Started:
  • Read through all instructions before beginning
  • This pattern works with a yarn that fades from one color into the next. So there will be Color A, then Color A into B, then Color B, then Color B into C and so on.
  • The pattern starts with a section of garter stitch through all of Color A, then when the color starts to change the row is finished and a section of seed stitch is worked through Color A into B, all of Color B, and Color B into C, as soon as the color change is completed and the row is finished then the pattern goes back to garter stitch for all of Color C.
  • This is repeated throughout so the garter sections are one solid color, and the seed stitch sections are a color change, a solid color, and a color change.

Striped Cake Scarf Pattern:

CO 235

Garter Section:
Row 1: K all.
Repeat Row 1 until color begins to change, then move onto Seed Stitch Section.

Seed Stitch Section:
Row 1: K1, (p1, k1) across.
Repeat Row 1 through color change, through next color and until the next color has changed, then move onto Garter Section.

Continue working Garter Section and Seed Stitch Section changing as indicated until final color.

Bind off knit wise, then weave in all ends.

Wear or give and enjoy!
