Gather a colorful pile of DK weight yarns to knit this rectangular scarf. The main color in garter stitch frames the contrast color pops in smooth stockinette stitch. Slip stitches form the brick motif and you only have to work with one color at a time. Choose between the small and large size for a small standard scarf width or a large wide wrap. You can easily customize the length of the scarf by binding off early for a shorter scarf or knit more brick pattern repeats for a longer scarf. Dive into your DK weight yarn collection and paint with yarn to create your own Painting Bricks Scarf!
