Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do the two-color cast-on (but it's also described in the pattern)
  • do double knitting (but it's also described in the pattern)

Pattern Description:

This is my my first double knitting scarf pattern.
And I love it.
Won(tm)t ever give away that beautiful scarf.
You can also make a baby blanket from the pattern just by adding an additional ladybug repeat.
And the ladybugs are such fun to knit!

Note: in double knitting the charts turn out a bit shorter than in normal knitting. So the pattern comes out a bit more compressed.

You need about 150 g of red and black 4-ply yarn each (196 - 209 m/50g). I used black yarn sckli and red yarn Versaille from Buttinette.

A picture tutorial on the two-color cast-on and an introduction to double knitting is also included in the pattern.

By adding additional repeats you can also turn it into a blanket.

Happy knitting!

Gauge:

6 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: about 190 cm x 23 cm
  • But you can adapt it by adding more ladybug repeats in width and length

Materials:

  • About 150g 4-ply yarn (Acrylic, Merino or sock yarn, yardage about 200 m/50g) in red and 150 g in black.
  • 2.5 mm needles (either a pair of normal cardigan needles or the way I like it: knit it flat on a circular needle about at least 40 cm length, anything longer will also do)

You Will Also Need:

  • tapestry needle to weave in the ends

Suggested yarn:

214 yards of Sport weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Buttinette Versaille

Colorway:

red and black
