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

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
