This charming little scarf is perfect for everyday wear. Orbit has an elongated asymmetric triangle shape that’s easy to wrap around the neck. It’s a fun and quick knit with garter stitch and eyelet stripes. All you need is just one skein of DK weight yarn.

Orbit is also available in the Stars Line Up Collection with fingering weight Asterism.

YARN
One skein of Madelinetosh Tosh DK (100% merino; 206 m / 225 yds per skein). Shown in colourway Thoreau.

Or approximately 206 m / 225 yds of similar DK weight yarn.

NEEDLE
Size 5 mm / US 8 circular needle. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain pattern gauge. Gauge affects finished size and the amount of yarn needed.

This scarf is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.

FINISHED SIZE After blocking
38 cm / 15 in (depth) x 170 cm / 67 in (wingspan)
