Sim­ple to knit, mod­ern and sassy—this ker­chief has it all! This would also be a great stash­bust­ing project.

Gauge

24 sts and 48 rows = 4 inches/10cm in garter st (blocked). To save time, take time to check gauge.

Spe­cial Ab­bre­vi­a­tion

Wrap and Turn (W&T): Slip next st pwise to RH nee­dle. Bring yarn to op­po­site side of work be­tween nee­dles, then slip same st back to LH nee­dle. Bring yarn to op­po­site side, wrap­ping st. Turn, leav­ing rem sts un­worked, then beg work­ing back in the other di­rec­tion. To hide wraps on sub­se­quent rows: Work to wrapped st. With RH nee­dle, pick up wrap and work wrap tog with wrapped st.

Pat­tern Notes

Scarf is worked side­ways from one tip to the other. The striped border is worked as a knit­ted-on edg­ing; 1 border stitch is knit to­gether with 1 stitch from the scarf body at the end of ev­ery right-side row.

Slip first stitch of ev­ery row purl­wise with yarn held in back of work; bring yarn in front of work, then slip last stitch purl­wise.

When chang­ing col­ors on body, cut yarns, leav­ing 5-inch tails on both old and new yarns.

Rows 97–169 of De­creas­ing Sec­tion are worked with 2 col­ors us­ing the In­tar­sia method (see page 79). At color changes, avoid mak­ing holes by pick­ing up new color from un­der old color.

When chang­ing col­ors for border, carry yarn not in use up side. At each color change, bring new color from un­der old color at be­gin­ning of row.
