The English county of Kent is renowned for its hard winters. Residents living in towns such as Beckenham soon learn to wrap themselves up well when the northerly winds arrive. Here are two scarves that might just keep them - and you - warm during the deepest of chills.
The pattern features a strongly graphical design which is just perfect for a man’s scarf. The grey scarf is worked in a soft worsted-weight merino wool, while the green version uses a super-warm chunky yarn.
Three different stitch charts are included to give a range of scarf widths to suit everyone you wish to knit for. The patterning is completely reversible so it doesn’t matter which side shows as the breezes start to blow.
The pattern is available in three versions:
1 - Formatted for UK / A4 paper
2 - Formatted for US / Letter-sized paper
3 - US / Large-print version with Arial Size 14 fonts and full-page charts.
Please select the file you wish to download from the three available. When using the Large Print version, please set your printer to automatically detect page orientation so that the charts print properly. This file can also be printed onto 11x17 ins paper for additional enlargement.
The Beckenham Scarf uses a reversible stitch taken from a new E-Book: Reversible Knitting Stitches - A Sourcebook of 200 Double-Sided Stitch Patterns. For more details, please see my website: www.wyndlestrawdesigns.com.
