Pattern Description
The Birch & Moss scarf is a cozy accessory for those early spring days. Drawing inspiration from the burgeoning growth and natural allure of the season, Birch & Moss combines delicate eyelets with slip-stitch texture. Crafted using DK weight yarn paired with a strand of laceweight Kid Mohair, the soft textures echo the gentle beauty of early springtime.

Birch & Moss is worked flat, divided into two parts. Part 1 uses C1 + CC held together for the Eyelet Pattern rows, while Part 2 is worked in C2 + CC held together for the Slip-Stitch Pattern rows.

The color transition from C1 to C2 aligns with the change in texture pattern. Alternatively, the entire scarf can be worked with the same yarn throughout.
(combine the C1 + C2 yardage amounts)

Birch & Moss measures approximately 7” / 17.5 cm wide x 73.5” / 184 cm long
