There’s a little bit of snow on this April morning here in Kansas. Two days ago it was nearly 80 degrees! That’s spring time Kansas weather…up and down.
It is cold enough that I grabbed my brand new super warm scarf when I drove my daughter to the bus stop. I was really hoping I would not need this scarf until next winter!
Last week I posted the knitting pattern for this scarf in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry. It’s called the “Two-by-Four Scarf”. (The name will make sense when you work the pattern!)

This is a quick, easy pattern! It’s a great pattern for any level of knitter…from beginner to advanced. Beginner knitters will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, cast off stitches and weave in ends. Advanced knitters might be able to read a book while knitting this scarf!
I used Rowan ‘Big Wool’ in the color ‘Vert’ #054. This is a beautiful, super bulky, 100% merino wool yarn. I love the color!
You will need approximately 135 yards of Super Bulky weight yarn (more yardage if you want to knit a longer scarf). You will also need size 13 US knitting needles (or size to obtain gauge). There are many yarns available in the Super Bulky category. Just look for this yarn symbol on the back of the label with the number “6”…this indicates the “Super Bulky” category of yarns.

With the super bulky yarn this scarf knits up very quickly! You’ll want to make one (or two!) for yourself and then you can knit a few for gifts. This is also a great man’s scarf knitting pattern. Pick a color to go with his coat…maybe a nice gray, brown or tan.
As I write this, a little bit of the snow is sticking to the roof tops and the deck. The leaves of my spring pansies are holding a dusting of snow. I hope the warm weather returns soon!
