Metallicar Illusion Scarf Pattern

I've teased about this for long enough. And here it is. The Metallicar Illusion Scarf Pattern in all it's Supernatural glory. If you do make this pattern, I would love to see pictures of you modeling the scarf. And yes, three are in the process of being made for Eric Kripke, Jensen Ackles, and Jared Padalecki.

For personal use only. Please feel free to modify this pattern, as long as source credit is given.

The pattern is based on the Supernatural Impala Dish Cloth by Concetta Phillipps. Original pattern modified with permission.

Samples pictured below were knitted on US Size 6 needles using Caron One Pound of Yarn (one skein black, one skein white). Approximately half the skeins are used. Finished dimensions are 114” long by 12.5” wide including fringe.

Gauge: 16 stitches and 26 rows per 4 inches

Materials used:
1/2 Skein Caron One Pound of Yarn (Black) or 413 yards of worsted weight yarn of choice
1/2 Skein Caron One Pound of Yarn (White) or 413 yards of worsted weight yarn of choice
#6 US/4mm knitting needles
#F/5 (3.75mm) crochet hook
Blunt eyed needle

Note - Since the colors repeat every two rows, do not cut the yarn when it is time to change color. Carry up the new color behind the strand of the color on the needle. It will form a decorative edge and save you the trouble of weaving in ends. Be careful not to pull too tightly or one side of the scarf will pucker.

That looks awesome!! I'm sure that the boys will love them when they get them. I'm thinking that would be a great gift for some of my fandom friends.

It looks awesome, I just saw it knitted in the spn knitting comm...*toes ground* you wouldn't happen to make a pattern for John Winchester too? I'm not that good a knitter, but I would give it a try for John Winchester. Erm :)
In any case, thanks for making these! :D

Hello, love the pattern, thank you for posting it! However when I do it my Metallicar shows up white instead of black. Do I need to start again and cast on with the white instead of the black yarn (and then swop the black and white around on the pattern)?
Thank you

Thanks for your email Shael. So glad I didn't pull it all out and start again :)

I was requested to knit this pattern and was seeking permission to do so. My question is, it states in the pattern for personal use only. Does that mean the final product can not be sold or the pattern is not to be sold.

Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you soon.

The pattern on my scarf is coming up white instead of black too. Does anyone know how to fix it?

If you are looking at the wrong side of the scarf, you will see the car in white in purl stitches. This is normal for the design. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of this.
