It looks really complicated doesn't it? But this is a very simple scarf to knit. The pattern only has two different rows to follow, one pattern row and one purl row, nice and simple.
Using this 4 ply multi coloured 100% merino yarn and a 4.5mm needle you can create a soft luxurious statement winter scarf. Keep it for yourself or make it for a friend.
Your scarf should measure 29 cm x 160 cm, this is dependent on your tension.
Knit One Kits top tip: The secret behind getting this scarf looking its best is to block it after you have cast off.
What is blocking?
This process relaxes and 'flattens' your knitting. Sometimes it is confused with ironing your work which will permanently flatten your knitting and NOT advised. To block pin your scarf out on a carpeted floor easing it out to its maximum size but taking care not to stretch it. Dampen some tea towels with hot water squeezing out the excess and lay flat on top of your work. Hand press the towels into your work so they make good contact and leave to dry. Once the towels are dry your work will have a much neater appearance.
