The Isometric Scarf is a modular, geometric scarf made up of straight lines that intersect to create strong diagonals. The scarf is built out of two repeating blocks and is knit with only vertical and horizontal ribbing. Each block is an isometric transformation of the other—a horizontal reflection and a vertical translation. The scarf features an i-cord cast-on and bind-off, as well as narrow i-cord selvedges.

Needles
One 32” / 80 cm circular needle in size US 6 / 4 mm
Or use a needle size to obtain gauge after blocking

Notions
Waste yarn, crochet hook, stitch marker, tapestry needle, blocking wires (optional)

Gauge
21 sts and 34 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Horizontal Ribbing after blocking

Notes
The set-up and bind off rows create i-cord edges.

When knitting the blocks, the first and last two stitches of each row form the selvedges. On the right side, these stitches are knit; on the wrong side, they are slipped with the yarn in front.

You might find it helpful to use blocking wires to achieve straight edges when blocking the finished scarf.
