Knitting Pattern: Windy Day Scarf with Slit | via scoutandwiles.com

I love a good scarf in the winter. But sometimes, no matter how well I wrap myself up, the season’s chilly winds will blow the ends around until I end up with a cold, uncovered neck. This scarf with a slit solves that issue by allowing you to pull the end of the scarf through itself, so there’s almost no way your neck will end up wind-chilled.

The knit 1 purl 1 ribbing creates a warm and attractive fabric. Pulling the end of the scarf through the slit instead of tying it also allows the scarf to lay flat against your body instead of adding bulk to your outfit, which also makes it great to wear under a coat.

When you’re creating the slit in the scarf, you will need to knit with 2 skeins at once. You can either buy 2 skeins of yarn or separate 1 skein into 2 balls of yarn.
