The scarf is made of hexagons with a flower pattern that are knitted together (no sewing needed). The sides are shaped with short rows.
Joining the hexagons is explained in detail, and with photos; the pattern also contains photo tutorials on short rows, and crochet cast on (no crochet skills required).
The pattern is for chunky/ bulky yarn, but it can be used with lighter yarns, if you want to make a smaller scarf. The length can be easily changed by knitting more or fewer flower pieces.
Skill level: intermediate/ experienced
You need to be able to knit in the round on dp and circular needles, and work short rows.
Sizes: one size
Finished length: approximately 190 cm/ 75 in
Finished width: approximately 22 cm/ 8.5 in
Chunky yarn that knits at a gauge of 14 sts and 19-20 rows per 10 cm / 4 in. Alternatively you can use 2 strands of DK yarn knitted together (the scarf in the photo was made with 2 strands of Sirdar Country Style DK, 45% acrylic, 40% nylon, 15% wool, colour 604).
For the best results use a smooth wool and acrylic blend yarn with good stitch definition, approx. 75 metres, per 50 gram ball - heavier yarn is not recommended.
Yarn amount needed: 600 metres/ 660 yards (double it if you work with 2 strands of DK yarn).
You can also use lighter (aran or DK) yarns, if you want to make a smaller scarf - in this case use yarn with more wool content
(in stockinette st)
14 sts per 10 cm/ 4 in using 6.5 mm needle.
If you use different weight yarns (not chunky) knit at the gauge recommended by yarn manufacturer. Make sure you work at the right gauge for your yarn - working too loosely would result in distorted flowers.
You will also need:
one set of 6.5 mm (US #10.5) DPNs (or circular needle for magic loop),
6.5 mm (US #10.5) circular needle in length of 100 or 120 cm (39 in or 47 in),
one 7.5 mm (US #11) straight needle or DPN,
crochet hook size as dp needles (US #K) for casting on, and making a fringe,
scrap yarn in contrasting colour,
blunt point tapestry needle,
a pen or a round object approx. 10 mm in diameter.
You might need to use different size needles to obtain the required gauge. Take time to make a gauge swatch. Adjust needle size, if necessary.
