Pterodactyl Polydactyl Scarf

Designed by our very own Helen Cosgrove-Davies

This simple-to-knit scarf is visually striking. It can be knit longer or shorter, depending on the yardage available. A note on the name: we have had people ask for the “Pterodactyl” pattern at shows, as we often have patterns designed for specific yarn sets. We loved the thought of a scarf called “Pterodactyl,” and therefore decided to call this the “Pterodactyl Polydactyl Scarf ” as a nod to that, and a reference to the sets for which it was designed.
