It will be available for purchase as a stand-alone pattern on Ravelry on April 9, 2018.

Attack on Titan’s Mikasa Ackerman is known for total badassery and her red scarf, which serves as an emotional shield, an outward symbol of her intense loyalty, and a bright warning of death to any danger in her way.

Our Mikasa Scarf captures that potent combination with its clean lines, wide fringe, and bold color. The scarf is completely reversible and easy to knit. It is worked on the long edge in one piece in a broken garter stitch that echoes the look of woven fabric. The fringe is integrated with the body and worked at the same time. The lush Merino yarn gives the scarf great drape and a plush feel, and the colorway—named for yet another warrior goddess—is the kind of perfect red even Mikasa might pause to admire.

Mikasa Scarf is equally suitable as a wardrobe stable and the finishing touch for Mikasa cosplay costume. In either case, wear it as a battle flag and personal standard: Here, there is strength, love, and ferocity.

Yarn and Yardage: Three skeins of Why Knot Fibers’ Steady, a gentle superwash yarn in 100% Merino, in the Inara colorway. Alternately, the scarf can be worked in approximately 625 yards of worsted-weight yarn.

Needles: The scarf is worked on the long edge, so you’ll want needles that are appropriate for a large number of stitches.

Instructions: The pattern includes fully written-out instructions.

Skills Needed: Knitting, purling, casting on mid-row. The pattern includes specific instructions for casting on mid-row.

Extras: A tapestry needle for weaving in ends, two stitch markers.

Thanks: To Sharon (called Ducky) and JFLS, fine enough models when the premier options aren’t available.
