Burst into Bloom Scarf - Knitting Pattern PDF
This double knit scarf pattern has two repeating motifs, a burst (or snowflake) and a bloom (or flower), and was designed with beginning double-knitters in mind. The color pattern is charted.
Double knitting creates a reversible fabric that appears to be knit on each side with a positive image on one side and the negative image on the other. This effect is created by working with both yarns at the same time in a k1, p1 motion. Double knitting can be executed either continental or English style.
