(6) Name: 'Knitting : Aventine

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • K2tog, SSK, YO.

Pattern Description:

Aventine is one of the Seven Hills of Rome lying to the east of the Tiber River. Some say the hill was named for the birds that nested there. This little scarf shares the name Aventine, because its delicate stitch reminds me of a flock of birds in flight.

Pattern is worked from the cast on straight through to the bind off edge. The yarn overs give it pleasing points on both ends and along the sides. The combination of knit and purl stitches on every row keeps it from curling at the edges, and gives it a nice texture. Pattern is written in three sizes: narrow scarf, wide scarf, and shawl.

Model: Malabrigo Sock, in Rayon Vert.

Stitch instructions: Charted and written.


17 sts to 4 inches (10 cm) in pattern stitch, blocked.
