If you are coming here from All Free Knitting or The Whoot or anywhere else (how did this thing go viral?!), the “scarf on the left” aka “that green scarf with the fringe” that everyone keeps emailing me about is a modification of this pattern. I don’t know who did it, thus, there is no written version for that modification. Near as I can tell it was done with thicker yarn, larger needles and doesn’t include the “legs” of the scarf, just fringe, and is worn to the side. It also looks like it was knit in garter stitch (ie knit both sides). So just cast on, and go immediately into the woven knot section. I’ve gotten 20+ emails about this and this is the best I can offer lol.

I was told by another user that this original pattern pic I got from the We Love Wool group on Facebook comes from Bysol on Etsy who offers their original pattern on Ravelry for $6. Please check out her pattern.

TIP from another user, be mindful of how much space you will need for the knot section, it may be more or less than the pattern suggests dependfing on gauge, yarn thickness, and the number of stitches you cast on. The length of the first 4 strips should be just about equal to the width of your scarf so when you loop the scarf around and weave the second set of strips to form the knot, you don’t end up with a saggy loose mess. Galzanne solved this problem by working the weaving section twice to make a longer knot. See pics of the awesome green scarf she finished. :)

This was requested by the We Love Wool facebook group after a picture of a similar scarf was posted. This is my attempt to make a pattern suitable for advanced beginners that looks much more difficult than it really is.

This is now also available in Danish!
