A favorite accessory in todays winter closets is a warm and cozy scarf or cowl. They come in all sorts of designs, colors, textures and styles. I have designed many but there is something about the Winter Tracks Scarf/Cowl that makes it my favorite this year.
The Winter Tracks Scarf
I fell in love with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn awhile ago and had this skein in my stash for awhile. I knew I wanted a warm scarf or cowl but I just wasn’t feeling a good design until I stumbled upon this gorgeous stitch one day. It is funny how things happen, I was trying out a stitch and didn’t like it so I switched it up all of a sudden I was drooling over the look and knew right then and there what I was going to make!
It is funny how crocheters seem to like the look of knit but cannot switch to the craft and stick with their hook and continue to crochet. Well, that sums up my attempts to knit, but yes, I love this stitch because it reminds me of a knit look.
I loved the stitch but couldn’t decide between a cowl or a scarf. So, I added buttons and made it so you can wear it either way.

A pattern testers finished scarf
One of my pattern testers, Jillian, did an outstanding job on her Winter Tracks Scarf. It shows the perfect color changes in the scarfie yarn and the look of the tracks in the stitches so well.
Another gorgeous sample was made by Heather, she made her Winter Tracks in Lion Brand Scarfie yarn in the color, “Teal & White”. I love the bold color with the white contrast, it really reminds me of those cool winter days.
