The Mottistone is a luxuriously thick scarf, suitable for both men and women. Although it is a simple pattern it results in a beautifully textured item that many will admire. It is named after the often windswept but picturesque Mottistone Down on the Isle of Wight where its warmth and comfort would be appreciated.
The length can be easily adjusted by crocheting a shorter foundation chain and once you have worked the first couple of rows the scarf grows remarkably quickly.
Try a pure wool yarn in deep autumnal colours for a truly scrumptious feel of cosiness.
Gauge is not essential on this garment. In fact, why not experiment? Try a finer hook and yarn (any good quality Double Knitting/light worsted yarn would be a good choice) to produce a lighter weight scarf more suitable for spring perhaps or use the double knit yarn and a larger hook for a looser pattern.

I am a self taught designer with many (many!) years of knitting and crocheting experience. Extremely keen to promote the beautiful island where I am lucky enough to reside and absolutely LOVE all things textural.
Have only just begun my journey into the world of commerce but lots more patterns are in development and I really look forward to sharing them with you soon.
