The fiber obsession began at six years old, and my first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. Since Barbie wasn’t paying me a living wage to keep her stylishly dressed, I ended up going to college, knitting feverishly throughout my education to maintain my sanity. I quit my day job at the phone company when I discovered that real people actually liked what I made, and have been designing ever since. I have co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails. I have designed for several major yarn companies and contributed to various magazines, books, and other publications .View all patterns by designer (21) »
You could call this scarf the Goldilocks scarf. Designed for weather that's not too hot, not too cold, but just right, Cosmopolitan adds a touch of style to your business wardrobe. Cosmopolitan features square holes that form a visual ladder. The scarf is worked in one piece, with no seaming, using a series of central bind-offs and cast-ons to create each square hole. You will need to weave in ends, though, so I recommend working those in as you go.
This pattern adapts well to other gauges and fibers. Knit it as I did in a dk weight bamboo for exceptional drape and a light sheen, or make it your own with a hand-dyed worsted weight. Make it short, and wear it as an ascot, or add squares for a figure-flattering lengthening effect. It's up to you.
