The best red scarf pattern from Vickie Howell that’s perfect for a winter knitting project.

I was so excited to read that Craft Hope had partnered with The Orphan Foundation of America and Vickie Howell (who donated a pattern) to provide college bound teens with a hand knitted or crocheted red scarf that I couldn't help but participate.

I hope whoever receives my scarf feels the love in every stitch as it warms them.

I only wish I'd had time to knit a few more.



Pattern: Vickie Howell's Star Stitch Pattern

Yarn: Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Cranberry

Needles: Clover Takumi Bamboo Knitting Needles – size 9 5.5mm

Note: I amended the pattern slightly to account for different needles and yarn to the original pattern. I cast on 33 stitches and instead of counting rows, I continued pattern until the scarf reached 60" long.

I can not find any link that will take me to the knit pattern for this wonderful cranberry star stitch scarf. Can you provide me with the pattern or where I can purchase the pattern? It is beautiful, thanks for sharing!

Hi Ginny,

Unfortunately it seems that the Craft Hope site is currently down where the pattern was being housed. The pattern was created by Vickie Howell. Here is a link to her blog post. I would leave a comment there and ask her to send it to you:

I'm sorry I can't be of more help.
