The color possibilities are limitless with the Mullioned Scarf, a cozy accessory knit in The Plucky Knitter’s Scholar 2.0. The patterning is made with slipped stitches, so only one color is used per round, and watching the windowpanes take shape is great fun. I cycled through five background colors in the sample scarf, but feel free to use any quantity or combination you’d like! The stashbusting potential is excellent.

This fabric, worked in the round, does make a substantial scarf, but the lofty, woolen-spun nature of Scholar 2.0 keeps it from becoming too heavy.

My husband likes to call this my “Tardis Scarf”, as it was knit during a Doctor Who marathon. While not intentional, the little windows do bring a certain police box to mind, and the colors and generous length give a tip of the hat to more iconic neckwear!

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.

Recommended Yarn:
The Plucky Knitter Scholar 2.0 — 75% merino wool / 25% cashmere — 255 yds (233 m) to 115 g.

Yardage requirements per colorway, for scarf as shown:

  1. Flannel (grey, ribbing color) — 290 yds (256 m) — approx. 13 g per band
  2. Wintry Mix (pale grey, outline color) — 640 yds (585 m) — approx. 32 g per three-color section
  3. Two Drifters (blue, background color 1) — 120 yds (110 m) — approx. 9 g per section
  4. Whatta Punk (orange, background color 2) — 120 yds (110 m) — same
  5. Splendor (green, background color 3) — 100 yds (91.5 m) — same
  6. Pinky Swear (purple, background color 4) — 100 yds (91.5 m) — same
  7. Triple Crown (yellow, background color 5) — 100 yds (91.5 m) — same

Sizing:
One size, 7.75” (20 cm) wide and 83” (211 cm) long. Cast-on number also given for smaller width of approx. 6.5” (16.5 cm).

Gauge:
22 sts and 42 rows to 4” (10 cm) in Windowpane Pattern, knit in the round, washed and blocked. (Stitch pattern makes a thick, compressed fabric.) Gauge in Seeded Rib is 22 sts and 30 rows to 4” (10 cm).

Needles:
One US 6 (4 mm) circular needle, 16” length, and two US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles, 24” length. Other methods of working circularly, such as Magic Loop, may also be used.

PLEASE NOTE: I knit very tightly. I used a US 7 (4.5 mm) needle for the bands of ribbing, and US 8 (5 mm) needles for the color sections, but knitters who are typically “on gauge” will likely need to use US 6 (4 mm) and US 7 (4.5 mm) needles. Very loose knitters may need to go down even further. Changes in gauge will affect finished size and amount of yarn used—to meet these dimensions, be sure to use the needle size that gives gauge.

Other Materials:
One stitch marker, tapestry needle.

Skills Used:
Working in the round with two circular needles, slipping sts in pattern.
