Track the temperature in a unique way, by creating a scarf that changes colors as the temperature does. The Weather or Knot project features seven colors; you’ll knit 2 rows, down and back, each day, choosing your color based on the day’s recorded high temperature. The scarf also features a simple, optional design element based on the day’s temperature compared to the historic averages for that day. Full instructions, background information, and worksheet are included.

Kits are available through The Yarnery, St. Paul, MN (
Each kit contains 7 skeins* (1 skein each of seven colors) of Coast by Holst Garn, the Weather or Knot pattern and accompanying temperature averages worksheet.

Needle requirement: US 4 (3.75 mm) straight or 24” circular needle.
If using a light fingering weight yarn like Coast, you may want to use a US 3 (3.5 mm) needle. If you opt for the smaller needle, the resulting scarf will be somewhat narrower and shorter

Finished Dimensions: app. 72-78” long and 8-9.5” wide, depending on yarn used

While seven skeins of fingering-weight yarn is more than enough to complete a scarf, we can’t predict the weather, so are not able to guarantee that one skein of a particular color will be enough, depending on how many days a particular color is knit.
