Ever since yesterday I’ve been thinking about what my first project for this blog should be and I came up with this: Very Berry Scarf. This scarf is a great way to kick off the fall season!
This is my very own pattern, therefore, I don’t have a picture of the scarf yet. I am still in the process of knitting it and it is coming along quite beautifully. This pattern consists of two types of stitch patterns: berry stitch and stockinette.
Here is what a berry stitch looks like….
|I apologize for the quality of these pics. I lost my camera a couple of months ago so these were taken on my phone.
6 skeins of 2 ply yarn (in this picture I used a wool/ fine alpaca blend)
Size 9 (5.5mm) needles
Cast on 35 stitches. Knit first row.
Berry Stitch (multiple of 4 sts + 3)
Row 2: k4, p3tog, *k3, p3tog
; repeat from * to last 4 sts, k4. [35 sts]
Row 3: k1, p3, *(k1, k1 tbl, k1)
into next st, p3; repeat from * to last st, k1. [53 sts]
Row 4: k1, p3tog
, *k3, p3tog
; repeat from * to last st, k1. [35sts]
Repeat Rows 1-4 until scarf is approximately 16″ from cast on edge.
Then repeat Row 1 and 2.
Row 1 (WS): purl.
Row 2: knit.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until stockinette portion measures approximately 12″. Then place these stitches on a stitch holder or spare needle. Now start on the second half of the scarf by repeating the same steps.
Joining The Two Sides
Use kitchener stitch to graft the two sides together and weave in the ends.
*Note: (k1, k1 tbl, k1) into next st is an increase technique. This step will increase your stitch by three.
Hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do!
