The Necessary Scarf Trio

from Nancy Totten's Craftsy Store

The Necessary Scarf Trio Becca

The Necessary Scarf Trio Em

Pattern Description:

My niece requested a scarf that is traditional, classic and functional. I looked at various patterns, but decided to create a one-of-a-kind by designing it from scratch. Then I remembered she has a sister and a sister-in-law, hence the Trio was born. They all use the same pattern stitch, just worked in different ways.
It is a simple knit and purl pattern that adds great texture. Using sport weight yarn on US # 10 needles, gives it drape and lightness.

This is a collection of 3 scarves

1. Becca - wide loop - knit flat, end to end and seamed - uses US #10 needles and 660 yards (604 m) of sport weight yarn - can be wrapped as cowl. Finishes ~ 44" (112 cm) circumference and 11" (28 cm) wide

2. Em - narrower, knit in the round, shows pattern stitches beautifully, uses US# 10 needles and 470 yards (430 m) of sport weight yarn- can be worn as a loop or wrapped as a cowl. Finishes ~ 52" (132 cm) circumference and 7.5" (20 cm) wide.

3. Kelly - long - straight two color scarf, long enough to wrap twice around neck or once with long tails - uses US# 8 needles and 460 yards Color A + 320 yards of Color B sport weight yarn. Finishes ~ 75" (190 cm) long and 7.5" (20 cm) wide.

Gauges vary depending on the needle used.
