Pocket Scarf and Fingerless Gloves: Free Knitting Pattern

I designed this pocket scarf and fingerless glove knitting pattern set to match my original earflap hat knitting pattern.  The pocket scarf is super long, so that it can wrap around your neck and still reach to hip length - a handy little feature that allows you to keep your fingertips warm when you are not using them to knit...or text...or any other activity that typical gloves won't allow.  Happy Knitting!
