Welcome to Witch & Wizard Academy! You are in Astronomy Class. As part of your lesson, you will be studying all 28 phases of the moon as you knit through the charts of this moon phase scarf. Feeling ambitious? Knit along with the moon as it phases. Begin your project on a new moon and knit one moon chart a day to complete the full lunation. Lunation – new moon to new moon.
Scarf is knitted in a long tube and is double sided and then blocked flat.
Owl Experience Level: 2 OWLS (intermediate)
Finished measurements blocked: 124 inches long x 5.5 inches wide measured flat.
Yarns used: Worsted weight yarn such as:
Cascade 220, 100 g – 220 yds – 200 m, 100% Peruvian Highland Wool.
MC: BLACK color # 8555 – 4 skeins

Work 18 sts and 20 rows to measure 4×4” in St stitch in the round using US 7 or 4.5 mm needles with MC. Use needles necessary to get gauge.
A pair of US 7 (4.5mm) circular needles 16 long,
OR use double pointed needles, OR you could use 2 sets of circular needles (simply knit half of the stitches on one set, and the other half of the stitches on the other set.)
I went with a 16” circular. It is a little on the tighter side, but as long as you get gauge you should be ok! 2 stitch markers, tapestry needle.
