Scrunch Scarf – Free Pattern!

December 13, 2010

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have a great last minute knitted gift for you today. I am calling it the Scrunch Scarf because that how it feels around your neck, all scrunchy and good. This scarf can be worked up in a matter hours on big needles and our big Outer yarn.

Here is some information you might like to know:

 

Finished measurements: 5 inches wide (garter stitch sections) by 64 inches in length

Yarn: Spud & Chloë Outer (65% superwash wool, 35% organic cotton; 100 grams/ 60 yards), 4 hanks in selected color (sample made in Rocket #7211)

Needles: US size 15 for stockinette sections (I used 24-inch circulars to work back and forth) and US size 11 for the garter stitch sections (I used two double-pointed needles to work back and forth)

Note: The scarf starts out on the larger size needles, then switches to the smaller size needles for the garter stitch section. I recommend using 2 double-pointed needles to work back and forth because it makes it easier to remember to switch back to the correct needle size when changing sections.

Gauge: 2 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch using the larger needles

 

I have been wanting to knit something in this fantastic Outer colorway, Rocket. It is a really great shade of pink.

I think a ruffle in a super bulky yarn looks so squishy and good. The edges on the stockinette section will roll under slightly. The simple increasing and decreasing creates a gorgeous and interesting scarf without being complicated.

You can wear it folded and pull the ends through the loop….

or wrapped around your neck a couple of times and tied. I like to wear it both ways!

Have fun with the Scrunch Scarf!
