Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should be an experienced knitter. However, the stitch pattern is very unique and you wont need any specific skills to work the pattern. There will be illustrated tutorials guiding through the stitch pattern step by step.

Pattern Description:

This rather unusual knitted stitch pattern is my own invention. I named it for this specific plant as the long, gathered clusters of stitches resemble the many tiny stems of the yarrow blossoms.
Right side and wrong side are almost identical.

The pattern contains directions for working a scarf and for working a loop.

There will be pictures illustrating each step. Though a little fiddly at first, this pattern is easy to memorize and, once you get into the rhythm, rather relaxing. You will also learn how to make those cool fringes!

Of course, you will need some lace weight yarn for the scarf and some bulky weight yarn for the loop. Sadly, there is no proper way to add two different yarn weight categories to one pattern page. I apologize for any confusion!


Scarf: 28 sts and 12 rows = 10 cm (4 in), in pattern with US#6/4 mm needle

Loop: 12 sts and 6 rows = 10 cm (4 in), in pattern with US#15/10 mm needle

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Scarf: Length: 155 cm (61 in); width: 31 cm (12.25 in)
  • Loop: Circumference: 105 cm (41.25 in); height: 33.5 cm (13 in)


  • US#6/4 mm circular, 80 cm (32 in) or longer (scarf)
  • US#15/10 mm circular, 80 cm (32 in) or longer (loop)

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 pair of scissors (for the fringes of the scarf)
  • 1 crochet hook 3-4 mm (to work the transition of rounds in the loop)
