Niobe (pronouced nye-oh-bee), a variety of clematis, is based on an old Shetland stitch pattern—and is also one of my all-time favorite blooming vines. This scarf is started by casting on only six stitches. The width is increased by one stitch every fourth row until the maximum width is achieved. Later, decreases are made at the same rate until just seven stitches remain to be bound off.

The colorful swatch was knit with The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Dragon Millipede to show how good the pattern looks in completely different yarns.

Scarf uses the same stitches as the Clematis triangular shawl, and Cirrhosa crescent.

Size (length x width): 80 x 13.5 inches; 203 x 34 cm.
