Pattern Description:

I wanted to design a scarf for the men in my life, I decided houndstooth was the perfect solution.

I chose a slipstich pattern that is easy to execute and creates a reversible fabric, perfect for a scarf. It is just a 2 row repeat that is easy to memorize or "read" as you knit.

Doesn't my son look great in the scarf?
Of course it also looks great on Lena, my model.


I used a light worsted weight yarn in suri merino.
20 stitches=4in/10cm in stitch pattern

The label on the yarn calls for a gauge of:
20 stitches=4in/10cm in stockinette stitch with a US7/4.5mm needle

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 6in/15cm wide, 77in/195.5cm long


  • US 9/5.5mm short circular needle

Suggested yarn:

440 yards of Worsted weight

My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
