Until Christmas 2023 all my knitting patterns (including this one) are 20% discounted with coupon code “XMAS” .

I like experimenting with my knitting. At the same time I think limitations lead to (more) creative solutions and designs. One of my preferred limitations is that I do not like to cut my yarn before I’ve completely finished a knitted piece. So when I saw a picture of knitted “holes” somewhere on the internet, I resolved to find a way to do this without cutting yarn - and this is the result.

This scarf is knitted in garter stitch only, but with square shaped holes. Once you’ve mastered how to do the holes, it’s good TV or travel knitting.

This pattern contains a photo tutorial on how to knit the square holes without cutting the yarn, instructions on how to knit a small swatch to get the hang of the technique and of course the written instructions to knit this scarf.

Unblocked my finished scarf measured 40 cm in width and 175 cm in length. Blocked my scarf measures 42 cm in width and 200 cm in length. However, there are hints on how to adapt the size.
