ARTICHOKE – Scarf

About this pattern: this is a nice lace stitch scarf that is great for a beginner – remembering the pattern is very easy and the results look very nice!  It’s also substantial enough to be an appropriate scarf for winter if you live in a cold place.

Gauge: doesn’t really matter – experiment to get the width that you most like, then knit it until it’s long enough.

Needles: I used size 6, but use whichever needles give you the results that you like.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK, about three balls (360 yards).

Pattern:

Loosely cast on 36 stitches (for a wider scarf, increase number of stitches by 4 to add an extra column of loops).

Row 1: K1, P2, *K2, P2* repeat between *s to last stitch, K1.

Row 2: K3, *P1, YO, P1, K2* repeat between *s to last stitch, K1.

Row 3: K1, P2, *K3, P2* repeat between *s to last stitch, K1.

Row 4: K3, *P3, K2* repeat between *s to last stitch, K1.

Row 5: K1, P2, *K3, pass first stitch of stitches just worked over last 2, P2* repeat between *s to last stitch, K1.

Repeat rows 2-5 for pattern until scarf measures 7’ or desired length.

Bind off loosely.

  1. it’s a great-looking scarf, and i look forward to making it. It would be good to have some idea of the yardage requirements for a 6 or 7 foot scarf?
