Olivia is an oversized scarf that feels really luxurious, especially in the yarn combination used here. The merino, silk, and linen create a lot of drape. The broken rib is so easy to work, but makes a great texture on both sides. It also lies fairly flat so the scarf doesn’t curl much at the sides. It’s also easy to modify the width and length of the pattern.

Skill level easy (knit and purl)

Yarn heavy aran yarn, 930 yards (850 meters)

To get this weight, I worked with two yarns held together, a worsted weight yarn together with a sport weight yarn. Shown in Sugar Bush Yarns Shanty held double with Sweatermaker Lucy

If you want to create a striped effect like the picture, you will need 4 colours in the sport weight.

Finished measurements about 14 by 90 inches (36 by 229 cm)

Tension/gauge 15 stitches = 4 inches (10 cm) Gauge is not crucial for this project

Needles US 10.5/6.5 mm
