I'm in love with big, wrappy scarves. In fact, I wear most of my shawls scrunched up around my neck, for a bit of color and warmth on cool fall and winter days. The design for Cilantro was created with this in mind. It's a triangle-shaped wrap, not entirely unlike a shawl. But Cilantro is a bit asymmetrical, and designed to be worn wrapped up, not extended across the shoulders. By casting on at the point, and working in pattern until you're nearly out of yarn, Cilantro uses up every yard. Even better, Cilantro can be worked successfully with nearly any gauge of yarn. Use the yardage specified for worsted-weight and sock-weight as a general guideline, and pick a needle size two sizes larger than what you'd use for stockinette. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increase follow simple lace pattern GAUGE For worsted-weight, 4 sts per inch For fingering-weight, 6 sts per inch All gauges measured after blocking SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 40" at short edge and 52" along sawtooth edge. Length and width can be increased with additional yarn.

Recommended with this pattern

  • Approx 300 yards worsted-weight yarn or 400 yards fingering-weight yarn
  • For worsted-weight version, 6mm needles
  • For fingering-weight version, 4mm needles
