Hollyhock Scarf’s shape couldn’t be simpler, as it is a big rectangle knitted in stockinette stitch and framed with garter stitch, but all the fun resides in its stitch patterns. It elegantly combines two different Fair Isle patterns, a simple lace stitch and long sections of plain stockinette, perfectly suited for a fun variegated yarn. The pattern calls for 3 colors of fingering weight yarn, and includes instructions to make it as long and as large as you desire, to accommodate your own preferences in size, yarn weight and yardage.

Yarn, Yardage and Dimensions
Scarf is adaptable in width and length. Yardage and gauge can vary to fit your preferences.

You will need:
3 colors of fingering weight yarn

It measures 70” (178 cm) long x 11” (28 cm) wide.


  • Pattern is adaptable, and includes percentage indications to use as much yarn as possible if that’s what you want to do. It also includes specific numbers of stitches and rows if you’d rather achieve specific measurements.

  • Make a swatch to make sure your tension is the same in both the stockinette sections and the Fair Isle sections. If your Fair Isle tension is tighter, you can use a bigger needle size for these sections.
