Easy Lion Brand Cupcake Scarf Knitting Pattern- a beginner-friendly pattern for a colorful, textured scarf!
For this pattern, I used Lion Brand Cupcake yarn. Cupcake has really long colorways so it’s ideal for color block throws and scarves. It creates pretty and vibrant gradient colors without the hassle of switching yarns. Thanks to its generous size, you only need one ball for this project.
This scarf is a mixture of garter and seed stitch. Seed stitch gets its name from the raised bumps that resemble seeds. It’s a reversible stitch that’s created using knit and purl stitches, but instead of having the stitches stack on top of each other to form ribbing, they are offset.
