Color Block Scarf is my latest project. My inspiration came from a color blocked dress I saw on television. I used the same colors as in the dress; pink, red, camel, and black to make my scarf. The rib pattern is Mistake-Stitch Rib. This textured pattern was probably discovered by accident, since it’s not the usual way to knit a rib. I love the look of this rib and it’s so easy, simply repeat one row. I’ve provided the pattern instructions for this stunning scarf.
- 100% pure wool Galway Worsted, each 100g skein is 220yds(200m), or use any worsted weight yarn to obtain gauge; 2 pink (A), 1 red (B), 1 camel (C), 1 black (D)
- 4.5 mm needles
10in(25cm) x 75in(187.5cm)
25.5 stitches and 27 rows equals 4in(10cm) in mistake-stitch rib, slightly stretched over 4.5 mm needles
Stitch Pattern – Mistake-Stitch Rib (Multiple of 4 + 3)
*k2, p2; rep from *, end k2, p1. Repeat this row for stitch pattern.
Cast on 63 stitches with 4.5mm needles. Following the color arrangement in the schematic, work from left to right in mistake-stitch rib for the measurements given for each color. Bind off stitches in color D and mistake-stitch rib. Weave in yarn ends. Block by hand washing the scarf, and lay flat to dry.
