Three to the Second Scarf
This is a very easy pattern that uses the different textures and colors of three yarns, together with a very easy stitch pattern, to make a scarf that is pretty even on the reverse side.
I used three yarns in hues of the same colour (purple) that would complement each other:
Yarn 1. a lace weight alpaca, for stretch and softness - you could use any soft lace weight yarn here.
Yarn 2. a smooth, single-colored sock yarn, for strength - you could use any soft fingering weight yarn here.
Yarn 3. a lace-weight mohair/silk blend, for halo - you could also use Rowan Kid Silk Haze, or Shibui Silk Cloud in place of the Kid Seta.
The scarf I made used two skeins of each yarn. I doubled each yarn.
Using Yarns 1 and 2, cast on 33 stitches, using a stretchy cast-on method of your choosing (I used the cable cast on).
Using only Yarns 1 and 2, knit rows 1 through 5.
Add Yarn 3 to the yarns used for Row 6. On Row 6, K2tog, k2, knit into the front and back of the next two stitches, k3, ask, repeat from
Using Yarns 1, 2, and 3, Purl Rows 7, 9, and 11
Using Yarns 1, 2, and 2, repeat the pattern described for Row 6 on Rows 8, 10, and 12.
Repeat the above until you have a scarf of your desired length.
