Basic Skills Necessary:

  • 200-220 yds ( m) each of two colors of worsted weight yarn. Sample worked in Knit Picks Chroma (Impressionist and Grey)
  • US size 7 (4.5mm) needles

Pattern Description:

The design for this scarf results from a convergence of two techniques: slip stitch mosaics and the brioche stitch. While the scarf appears to be worked using a 2-color stranded method, only 1 color is used at a time. The result creates a reversible, luxuriously squishy scarf that has two distinct yet equally attractive sides. One side looks more like a traditional stockinette mosaic, but the fabric lays flat and does not roll as traditional stockinette must. The other side reveals a surprising textured effect, as shown in the photo below.

This unisex scarf is very warm, yet lightweight and comfortable to wear. The pattern works well when combining a neutral color with a variegated with long color changes, or using 2 contrasting solids.

20 stitches and 44 rows = 4 inches in Pattern Stitch
