GAUGE - Not Important! Start out by casting on either 21 or
25 sts, work the first 2½" and see if it measures 6" across. If so, keep going.
If not, determine how many stitches will yield 6" and cast on that number, being sure
to use an odd number of stitches.
Entire Scarf is knitted in Seed Stitch over an Odd Number of
(K1, P1) to last stitch, end K1 - Repeat this row throughout, always keeping pattern
correct during bind off and cast on.
This scarf can also be knitted all in Garter Stitch (knit
every row). It will be a little more dense than the Seed Stitch version.
To cast on after the bind off row, use either a
backwards loop cast on, or knit the stitches on.
|Knit Cast On
*Insert the right needle between the first two stitches on the left needle,
pull up a loop, leaving the original stitches on the left hand needle, slip this new loop
onto the left needle.
Repeat from *, always
inserting the right needle between the last two stitches on the left needle.
Backwards loop cast on:
Cast on 25 sts (or approximately 6" worth of stitches, being sure to have an odd
number). Work in pattern for 2½.
*Loosely bind off 12 sts (or 1 stitch less than 1/2 the total
number), work to end of row = 13 sts remain (or 1 stitch more than 1/2 the total number).
Work 1 row more, then cast on 12 sts (or the same number you bound off on the previous row
= 25 sts (the original number of stitches)
Work 1½ more in pattern, or until longer edge measures
3", ending opposite edge from previous Bind off/Cast on, or at longer edge.
Repeat from *, always casting off from opposite edge as
previous Bind Off/Cast On
Finish by working last repeat to 2½, bind off loosely.
Weave in ends. If using Feza Yarns Premier or
Dazzle simply let the cut ends hang loosely for a bit of extra texture.
To work with 3 different yarns proceed as follows:
With A, cast on
Leave A hanging at the edge and with B, work 1 row in pattern
Leave B hanging at the edge and with C, work 1 row in pattern
This takes you back to where A is left hanging. Pick up A,
leave C hanging at the edge and work 1 row with A. Continue to drop the old yarn and pick
up the new yarn every row until the bind off row.
Now, either weave the dropped color over and under every
other stitch, or, work the two yarns together as you bind off, then leave the old yarn
hanging at that point and finish the row with just the new yarn.
At the end of this row, change to the new yarn and work over
to the bound off stitches. Again, either weave the new yarn over and under or work it
together with the working yarn as you cast on the new stitches. Then, be sure to work the
next row with the correct yarn!
