The Traveling Scarf is my favorite of the Traveling Woman Collection. It includes instructions for a scarf in fingering weight and a stole in worsted weight. Don’t be afraid to branch out, though. I’ve included tables for additional yarn weights and sizes.
The pattern uses two different methods of construction: (1) requires a scale and one provisional cast on; (2) requires two provisional cast ons and grafting, but does not need a scale. Both methods work for any yarn weight and FO size and are designed to maximize your yardage.
The pattern includes both written instructions and charted instructions. Instructions are given to use every single last yard of your yarn. You have two options for knitting the pattern, one of which requires grafting (the other doesn’t).
Options for customization include:
- Custom sizing formula
- Working the entire body in lace (two lace options)
- Preventing edge flaring
- Preventing curling in narrower scarves
Special skill requirements include: provisional cast on, grafting (optional), and lace knitting.
