A slip-stitch pattern to maximize the effect of novelty yarns and give two different appearances Looking for a perfect way to use fanciful yarns? Make this simple sideways-knit scarf, using only one yarn at a time. One side features decorative horizontal floats of yarn, the other, vertical columns of colour. The yarns alternately work, then skip in front of groups of two stitches. The floats of yarn allow fluffy or exotic yarns to strut their stuff to the max. Minimal finishing required. Fringes or beads may be added, if desired. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic knitting slip-stitches long-tail or Continental Cast-On GAUGE 4-5 stitches per inch in stocking stitch (Choose needles at least two sizes larger than suggested by the ball-band of your heaviest yarn; the slip stitch pattern condenses the rows and will give a very stiff fabric if too small a needle is used.) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 80 - 100 cms / 32 - 40" long.

Supplies Needed

  • 90-180 metres each of Main and Contrast yarns
  • 7-9mm needles
