Arc of the Hypotenuse Scarf

Pattern is both charted and written using American English terms and abbreviations - glossary provided.

US and Metric measurements.

Beginner skill level - knit, purl, slip only.

Very versatile - fully reversible, with a unique shape.

Play with gauge.. Looks great with DK on US 6 (4mm) or with super duper bulky on US 35 (19 mm).

Graphic stitch patterning of alternating - 2 row /5 st ‘bars of knits then purls moving zigzag fashion across a base background of K1 P1 ribbing. The movement of the bars across causes a slight scalloping at the lengthwise edges, which I have accentuated with a ‘hard’ or ‘shaping’ block finish.


180 yards (165 meters) of Jumbo Yarn @ approx WPI of 3.5
~ Sample shown used 3 (60 yd/55m) hanks of Plymouth ‘Yukon’

Clip-On Marker (optional) ~ to mark the RS of the work

Blocking Surface

Sample measures 5.5” wide after blocking and 80” long (11.5 reps, ending final rep on a row 15)
It was knit tightly on US 13 needles


Gauge not critical but will affect size and yardage.

Sample gauge: 5.5” wide after blocking.

You may also choose to use use any weight of yarn and compatible needle, they all look good… try a long skinny one with DK on US 6 (4mm) needles; or an extra wide, super duper bulky one on US 35 (19 mm) needles. Plan for yardage differences accordingly.
