Mindless Scarf pattern

Mindless Scarf

Here’s my finished Mindless Scarf. I’ve made mine in cotton so I can wear it through spring (and summer in Scotland) all year round! The cotton gives a good stitch definition too; the fabric is quite crochet-like. It could be made in any yarn you like though; just knit a swatch first to work out your finished size. The colour I used is discontinued (why are my favourite colours always discontinued? Yellow and orange yarns never seem to get shelved).
