Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit stitch

Pattern Description:

I love to collect sock yarn, especially handpaint sock yarn. Sometimes I want to drape that sock yarn around my neck so I can see it and enjoy it rather than wear it on my feet! That?s where the inspiration for this scarf came from. It combines knitting and crochet and is very easy to knit and so much fun to wear. It?s a great pattern for using up leftover sock yarn or for that special handpaint sock yarn that you just had to buy!

Knits up quickly and is a great take-along project to work on while watching the kids at soccer or baseball. Or when you are waiting at the doctors office or when traveling.


Gauge is not too important, you really just want to get the right drape with the yarn you choose, but 4 stitches per inch and 12 rows per inch is a good start.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • approx. 80-84" end to end
  • approx. 11-12" from center to bottom point


  • 24' or 29" circular knitting needle size US 8 (5mm)
  • size F crochet hook
  • row counter

You Will Also Need:

  • 380-400 yards of sock or fingering weight yarn
