  • knitting

Pattern Description:

The sleeve gives a nice thickness and allows the stitch to "move" in a snakelike way. It's very eye-catching. A nice way to knit a pattern and hide the wrong side.

If you make this wide enough it can double as a stocking hat. The pattern is very stretchy and doesn't require edging to keep it strong. Using a good, firm worsted weight yarn on small needles also gives a sharp architecture to the pattern that is thick enough to keep ears warm on a blustry day. When you're done wearing it as a hat, a slight tug on the end slims it back down to scarf width.


For scarves this really isn't an issue, but my gauge was 5 stitches per inch in stockinette. Since the pattern expands and contracts, I'd do a swatch to make sure you have the size you need.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Width when folded: 4 inches
  • Length: 72 inches


  • 4 skeins worsted weight yarn
  • US 6 (4.0mm) circular needles
  • stitch markers (optional)

Started knitting when I was a child. Gave it up for child raising and work. Started again as a creative outlet that also provided my kids with warm, snuggly clothes.

Now that the kids are growing and I am learning to deal with a disability, knitting is a great creative outlet! It gives me joy on a dreary day and is really excellent therapy for my hands.
