The new Spoke Scarf pattern by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton is too cool for school, yes? It's a great summer knitting project, a geometric openwork design, which, in a similar colorway, will set off any color jacket or sweater in the fall just in time for school, work, or running errands. Not a free pattern, but reasonably priced at $4.00.
You'll find the pattern link on Hamilton Yarns site.
One of the great things about this pattern is it can be used in a range of yarn weights, with thinner yarns making the scarf narrower. Try it out on different yarns you have at home!!
