Celebration Scarf

 

scarf_holiday_crop (1)

Let’s bring in the holidays with a beautiful double knit scarf, perfect for the chilly weather! Its beautiful design will have you reaching for your knitting loom and casting on.

Designed by: Jacquelyn Darragh

Loom: All-in-One Loom set up for double knit with 1cm spacing

Yarn: Worsted Weight Yarn, sample uses Vanna’s Choice.  170 yards/100 grams per skein (100% Acrylic);

3 skeins Cranberry, 1 skein White.  Or use any worsted weight yarn preferred.  (W)=white   (C)=cranberry

Stitches: Stockinette, Rib, and back-to-back weave.  Work in stockinette unless the pattern says to work in rib or back-to- back weave (basic weave)

Notions: Knitting hook, Crochet hook size 5/F, large sewing needle

Size: 9 x 64 inches

Gauge:  4 stitches and 3 rows = 1 inch

Pattern notes:  You may want to number your pegs as it is a little easier to follow the chart. To mark the loom, lay painter’s masking tape along the wood next to the pegs on both boards.  Use a fine-point pen or Sharpie and just number from 1 to 35 for the width of scarf.

Work the scarf in the center of the knitting board rather than at the ends.

Always wrap the pegs with the (W) yarn first.   This creates the pattern.  Then you will fill in all the rest of the pegs that were not wrapped using (C).

Work the chart from bottom, and work up the scarf.  Print a copy of the pattern.  After completing each row, draw line thru the row, or fold over the pattern paper so that the current row is easy to see.  Written instructions are also included.

Back-to-back weave:  This is an easy way to work stitches that are just a few in number within a row.  When you are working in stockinette for the main color of each row, the extra color stitches may be worked with a single pass.  Similar to working in Figure8, only without the twist of the ‘8’.  So wrap the yarn around both pegs of the stitch, front to back, going straight across the boards.  This can also add a bit of highlight effect to stitches.  In this pattern, it is used to simplify with just a single pass rather than doing the stockinette weave.  See photo at end of pattern.

Row 96:  Tie on (W) yarn near peg 6.  Work pegs 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, and 30 in basic.  Wrap all other pegs in (C).  Hook over and tie (W) yarn and cut.

Rows 97-107:  Work 11 rows in stockinette stitch, (C) yarn.

Row 108: Repeat Row 84.

Row 180: Repeat row 84.

Rows 181 – 191: Work 11 rows in stockinette, (C) yarn.

NOTE:  If you want your scarf shorter or longer, this would be the place to make adjustments.  Take one or more rows of the solid Stockinette out to make the scarf shorter, or add one or more rows in between the “stars” to make it longer.

The scarf is a mirror image so that you can take the pattern upside down if you’re using the chart.

Row 192: Repeat row 72.

Row 193: Repeat row 71.

Row 194: Repeat row 70.

Row 195: Repeat row 69.

Rows 196-255: Continue to repeat the rows in reverse.  It will probably be exceedingly easier to use the chart and check off each row as you go.

Row 256: Work 1 row in stockinette, (C) yarn.

Rows 257 – 263:  Work in rib stitch.

Row 264:  Work 1 row in stockinette, (C) yarn.

Bind off loosely and finish ends with crochet hook in 2-loop method.  Remove anchor yarn. Weave in ends and yarn tails.  Enjoy the holiday season in this gorgeous and warm scarf!

Back to back weave in photo.  When working in stockinette, and the pattern calls for a few stitches in back to back, we just weave the yarn around back peg and straight down to front peg, of one stitch.  This results in a single pass simplifying the change of colors.  In this photo, the red yarn is done in Stockinette and the white yarn is done in back-to-back weave or basic weave.  This is an easy way to adjust the pegs to be wrapped in each row.

  • Beautiful! Do we get to know the very talented designers, or will they be kept a mystery? The scarf is very lovely, congratulations to the designer.

  • Thank you Sue for pointing that out. We will add the names of the designers, they are all part of the KB Team. The Celebration Scarf was designed by the talented, double knit guru, Jacquelyn Darragh.

  • On Facebook some one asked what the back to back weave is. Does it mean make the pattern white pegs done first in stockinette and then come back on all skipped pegs in red with the stockinette wrap? Could you explain it in the comments. I had not heard it called ‘weave’ before either.

  • Beautiful! Thank you so much for the pattern — it truly is lovely and I can’t wait to try it! Can you please explain what is meant by “wrap the stitches in a back-to-back weave” in row 9? Thank you so much.

  • Exquisite! I really love the contrasting red and white, and what a beautiful design! :)

  • Hi ! but I don’t know what they mean with “back to back” or “basic weave”. Can’t find an explanation anywhere. Can anybody explain this?

  • Hi, the instruction for the back to back weave has been added to the pattern for the holiday scarf. But it is worked like a Figure8 without the twist. Just weave both pegs of a double stitch by wrapping the yarn, straight across around both pegs. It was used to simplify the color stitches when there were just a few in each row.

  • I am very much a beginner. When doing the rib stitch for the first rows I have 2 rows at end rather than one. Do I just wrap 34 individually and then start back from 35 to 33?

  • I am with jefferie rib stitch doesn’t work at the end of the row dont know how to fix this problem

  • Hi, Usually when doing the rib stitch, we use an even amount of stitches. However, this is not always required especially when you are doing just a few rows before beginning a design. In the case of this beautiful scarf, the design of the Christmas balls and ribbons was the primary goal. So, you start the rib stitch on peg 1 top to peg 3 bottom and work across the pegs. When you get to the end of the row, you are taking the yarn from top peg 33 to bottom peg 35. Wrap around and go back up to peg top 35. Wrap pegs 34 top and bottom, and then continue the rib stitch, back to beginning.

  • Pat thank you so much for the update i am looking forward to making this scarf i hope it turns out as beautiful as the sample
