Scarf in the pictures is knitted by Neja from Mohairmetsä. Thank you yet again :)
Grignasco merinosilk doubled, scarf in the pictures weights 85 gr. You can alter scarf size by making pattern 2 repeats as many as you want to.
You can use almost any yarn for this scarf; thinner yarn makes ligter scarf.
Needles and such
Pick needles as size 1 or 2 (mm) bigger that yarn recommended. If you are used to knit with stitch marks, you'll need them too. Scarf in pictures is knitted with 4,5 mm needles.
As big as you want it to be. Scarf in the pictures is 194 x 68 cm. You can easily alter scarf size by makink as many chart 2 repeats as you want to.
I love to use always this same method to cast on. It's same style that Evelyn A. Clark uses for her scarfs.
Using crochet hook and waste yarn, ch 4, fasten off. With shawl yarn an knitting needles, pick up and knit 1 st in each of 2 nubs at back chain - 2 sts.
Knit rows 1-6. In row 7 K2, pick up and knit 1 st in each of 3 garter ridges along side edge; unzip waste yarn chain, putting the 2 exposed sts onto left needle; knit these 2 sts - 7 sts.
Work rows 1-16 of Neck Chart. (click for bigger view)
Work rows 1-18 of Pattern Mark chart 2 as many times as you want to. To make scarf as big as in the pictures, repeat chart 2 9 times total. You can make more or less repeats.
Work rows 1-14 of Edge chart 3 and bind off all stitches loosely.
Weave in loose ends, leaving tails 2"–3" (5–7 cm) long; tails will be trimmed flush with surface of shawl after blocking.
Soak shawl for at least 20 minutes. Wrap in towel to remove excess water. Lay flat, and smooth into shape.
Pull out points along side edges at each “yo, k1 yo’’ in last row of edging and pin to finished measurements. Leave in place until thoroughly dry.
Carefully trim ends of tails.
