#08 Double-Sided Scarf
Pattern Description from Knit.1, Spring/Summer 2009: “Double knitting’s making noise these days. Schlueter’s mohair scarf - in popular ‘Kidsilk Haze’ from Rowan/Westminster Fibers - features a double-knit reversible pattern that takes a k1 in one shade, a p1 in a contrast color, and flips the order on the return row.”
- 1 ball each in #581 Meadow (A) and #582 Trance (B) of Kidsilk Haze by Rowan/Westminster Fibers, Inc., .88oz/25g balls, each approx 227yds/208m (superkid mohair/silk)
- One pair size 8 (5mm) knitting needles or size to get the gauge
Measurements: Approximately 6”/15cm wide and 66”/167.5cm long
- If you are not familiar with the technique of double knitting, work a swatch in a heavier weight of scrap yarn before starting.
- Every row is worked with 1 strand of both colors. Begin every row by bringing the yarn used for the first st underneath the other strand of yarn to join the edges.
- When knitting, both yarns must be brought to the back of the work; when purling, both yarns must be brought to the front of the work.
