This scarf is done with homespun Romney/Merino X wool. It is spun to aproximately worsted weight…10 wpi. I used approximately 180 yards, but you can make any length you would like.
Knitting needles size 11
Cast on 25
Begin with 4 rows of garter stitch…knit each stitch across for 4 rows, then begin pattern.
Row 1: k1, p1, (k3,p3) 3 times, k3, p1, k1
Row 2: k1, p1, (p3, k3) 3 times, p3, p1, k1
Row 3: Repeat Row 1
Row 4: Repeat Row 2
Row 5: Repeat Row 1
Row 6: k1, p1, (p3, k3) 3 times, p3, p1, k1
Row 7: k1, p1, (k3,p3) 3 times, k3, p1, k1
Row 8: Repeat Row 6
Row 9: Repeat 7
Row 10: Repeat Row 6
Repeat these 10 rows for pattern until your scarf is as long as you would like it to be. It looks best if you end your pattern with either Row 5 or Row 10 ..then begin the garter stitch border.
End with 4 rows of garter stitch… knit across each row for 4 rows.
I hope you enjoy this… Happy knitting!
