Since I dyed my yarns various shades of the same color, I thought it would be cool to knit similar yet slightly differing colors together. Not only were the colors great, but knitting with two yarns creates a very warm piece, perfect for the cold winters we have here in Minnesota. This pattern can me found in pdf version on ravelry.
I call this my “Sprout” colored cowl, which can be found here for purchase.
2 balls Patons Classic Wool (hand dyed) – 100% wool, 210 yards/192m, 3.5oz/100g
Size 13 (9.00mm)
19 inches in circumference, 11 inches tall
16 sts in daisy st = 4 inches
sl = slip purlwise
wyif = with yarn in front
wyib = with yarn in back
ds = daisy stitch: p3tog, leave stitches on left needle, yarn over, purl same 3 sts together again
With both yarns together (here and throughout), cast on 43 sts.
Beginning Row (RS): k2, p1, k to 4 sts from end, p1, k2
Row 1 (WS): sl1 wyif, p1, k1, *p1, ds* repeat 9 times, p1, k1, p2
Rows 2 and 4: sl1 wyib, k1, p1, k to 4 sts from end, p1, k2
Row 3: sl1 wyif, p1, k1, p2, *p1, ds* repeat 8 times, p3, k1, p2
Repeat rows 1-4 16 times for pattern dimensions. Cast off. Sew first and last rows together. A good tutorial for this is the horizontal seam or the backstitch on this fantastic website.
If you would like a longer scarf, repeat rows 1-4 until desired length is achieved. If you would like a wider scarf, increase amount of stitches by four.
This is my first written pattern so let me know if anything needs clarification! Thanks for reading!
