Mr. Woodhouse's Scarf
This pattern makes a shawl-width scarf, just as pictured in the movie, Emma. Houses were chilly in those days, and men often wore shawls and caps in the house to keep warm. I you use 1/4 of the cast-on stitches, you’ll get a modern adaptation of a normal scarf width.
The finished scarf/shawl has fringe which is not shown in these photos.
Please note that this pattern has been updated on 3.2.10 - the length of the neck section in my original pattern post was incorrect (a typo). Using the incorrect, original neck length will cause you to run out of yarn before you are done! And, it will make your scarf very, very long….! If you download the pattern from this link after March 2010, you’ll get the correct version.
Please note that this pattern was updated with version 2 on 3.20.13. One of the moss stitch row counts was off - each moss stitch section, with the exception of the center section, should be 20 rows. The download is now correct.
From the charming movie Emma, 2009
