Fancy Scarf

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic knitting
  • slip-stitches
  • long-tail or Continental Cast-On

Pattern Description:

A slip-stitch pattern to maximize the effect of novelty yarns and give two different appearances

Looking for a perfect way to use fanciful yarns?
Make this simple sideways-knit scarf, using only
one yarn at a time. One side features decorative
horizontal floats of yarn, the other, vertical columns
of colour. The yarns alternately work, then skip in
front of groups of two stitches. The floats of yarn
allow fluffy or exotic yarns to strut their stuff to the
Minimal finishing required. Fringes or beads may be
added, if desired.


4-5 stitches per inch in stocking stitch

(Choose needles at least two sizes larger than
suggested by the ball-band of your heaviest yarn;
the slip stitch pattern condenses the rows and will give a very stiff fabric if too small a needle is used.)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 80 - 100 cms / 32 - 40" long.


  • 90-180 metres each of Main and Contrast yarns
  • 7-9mm needles
