This pattern is available a part of a collection - 3 patterns for 4 euros.

NOTE: If you already bought Samothrace Wings previously, you do not need to buy this pattern - you will receive an update allowing you to download it for free. Any problems, please get in touch.

ERRATTA- bottom of page 3 should say to stop after a SEction 1 (not 2), so that you start the shaping with the mc. And for the 2nd set of decreases you should repeat rows 1-8, not 1-7. Will update the file as soon as I can. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Often as we knit we start to wonder, what if…. ?

This is the third in a series of just such questions:

Colourwheel Cowl: what if I put short rows in a bias-knit cowl

Samothrace Wings: what if I want it to be a scarf (the answer was shaping the tip)

and now

What if….. some of the sections are worked with a different yarn (the answer is something quite striking for very little extra effort).

The ends are different shapes so you can wear it different ways.

Yarn requirements: This a very flexible pattern, which you can easily adjust to the yarn you have.

For a long narrow version allow at least 150m/165yds of each yarn.
For a deeper version allow at least 250m/275yds of each yarn.
(more details in the pattern).

Stitches used: knit, kfb, k2tog, wrap and turn - but without picking up the wraps so that’s easy (and no purling at all)

Many thanks to the testers:
