This children’s sized scarf is knitted using the so called fair isle, or standed knitting technique. If you’re not too familiar with this kind of knitting, these tutorials might be helpful (here, here and here).

For this scarf I casted on 24 stitches with my 6 mm needles, and knitted 101 rows (stockinette stitch); my finished project measures 18 cm x 124 cm.

This pdf gives you the pattern; per page you want to read from the bottom to the top.

I dediced to line my scarf with a pretty pink fabric; I cut two pieces of approx. 20 cm x 126 cm; sewed them together (right sides facing, a 1 cm seam all around, leaving a small opening to turn the lining inside/out). I then pinned the lining to the knitted scarf and hand stitched the two together.
