Suitable yarns for this project can be found by clicking here- http://www.veganyarn.co.uk/product-tag/adjustable-scarf/

You can customise any of our colourways so if you would like speckles etc adding to any of our base colours just let us know.

Skills use: Cast on/off, joining a colour, knit, purl and carrying yarn up the side of the project. You will only ever use one colour at a time.

We made this scarf by casting on 35 stitches which gave us the width of 16cm and the length of 240cm.

Casting on 70 stitches would give you a scarf that is approximately 32cm by 120cm, therefore we suggest that for every extra 5 stitches added to the original 35 cast on stitches the scarf will be 2.25cm wider than the original measurements.

In this example Yarn 1 is the Blue/Grey yarn and Yarn 2 is the Fawn yarn.

The Pattern

Cast on 35 stitches in your preferred method using Yarn 1.

Knit 6 rows in total.

Place your work down with the yarn at the right ready to knit another row. Take your locking stitch marker and fix to the front of your, this is the right side (RS). You may have to move the marker up as you complete more of the scarf.

You may also find it helpful to place stitch makers after the first 3 stitches and before the last 3 stitches as shown below.

The next 12 rows are the repeating part of the pattern, which you will repeat to the end.

TIP: If you don’t like the way the thicker bits are lining up/pooling in your work, add a few slip stitches at the beginning or end of a row and the thicker bits should now align differently.

We repeated these rows 62 times before moving onto the next finishing section of 7 rows. This gave a scarf measuring 240cm long. If you feel you have more yarn and would like to continue you can, we used 6 meters for the final 6 rows and bind off over 35 stitches.

Change to Yarn 2 and Knit 6 rows total. Now bind off with your preferred method.

Sew in any ends, and enjoy your scarf! This yarn doesn’t need blocking.
