Knitting has been a part of my life for a very long time – over 45 years. For a long while now, I’ve wished I could publish some of my own original knitting patterns. Well, that dream has come true! My very first published knitting pattern – the Reversible Herringbone Scarf is available to download on the top right of this blog. If you click on the small picture on the top right or the larger picture in this post a PDF document of the pattern will open in a new window.
This pattern was submitted to Ravelry and I’ve been accepted as a designer there! It isl so exciting that after all these years this small knitting dream is coming true!

This is a very versatile scarf pattern – it can be made in many widths and is a suitable pattern stitch for men, women or children. It can be made in any weight of yarn as well. The most important thing, to me, in a scarf pattern – is for the scarf to look good on both sides – this scarf looks the same on both sides. Also, it is super simple to knit – the instructions are very detailed without lots of abbreviations. It works best in a plain color so the stitch pattern is visible and a soft yarn which would feel nice around your neck.
