Rummy is a top-down triangular kerchief designed to use up stash oddments and oddballs.

The samples were knitted using approximately
75 m fingering yarn as the main colour;
40 m DK yarn as contrast colour 1;
70 m worsted as contrast colour 2.

Of course, the kerchief can be knitted in yarn of all the same weights. The yardage requirements may then vary.


A new version of the pattern was uploaded in July 2019. It has been entirely rewritten and reformatted. In addition, a chart for the eyelets has been added. There are also instructions to change the size of the kerchief.

The original pattern is still available. However, using the new version (Rummy v2) is highly recommended.
