A bias-knit reversible scarf with a bobbled edge. You may find the rhythmic flow of the twelve row repeat to be reminiscent of a sirens’ call.

Approximate Finished Measurements: 10” at widest point x 72” long after blocking

Materials
400—yards fingering weight yarn. We used Ella Rae Lace Merino (460yds/100G, 100% Merino Wool):
Color 231 Around the World: 1 skein

  • US Size 5 (3.75mm) 24” (60.96cm) or 32” (81.28 cm) circular needle
  • 1 stitch marker
  • tapestry needle

Gauge
16 sts, 32 rows = 4” in garter stitch (knit every row) on US Size 5 (3.75mm) knitting needle after blocking.
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge. I “wet blocked” the scarf so that the stitches relaxed and made a very drapey scarf. To ensure your scarf will be the same as ours, see the “Finishing” section on how to wet block.
