Small scarves are always in season! Orbit is an asymmetrical scarf with a sleek, elongated triangle shape. It’s fun to whip up and perfect for everyday wear.

With garter stitch and simple eyelets, it’s relaxing and deliciously mindless to knit. And the best part? All you need is one skein of DK-weight yarn!

One skein of Madelinetosh Tosh DK (100% merino; 206 m / 225 yds per skein). Shown in colour Thoreau.

Or approximately 206 m / 225 yds of similar DK weight yarn.

Size 5 mm / US 8 needles or size to obtain pattern gauge

This scarf is worked flat, but I recommend using 80 cm / 32-inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.

FINISHED SIZE After blocking
Depth: 38 cm / 15 in
Width: 170 cm / 67 in

k: knit
kfb: knit to front and back loop of the same stitch
yo: yarn over
k2tog: knit two stitches together

This pattern has both written and charted instructions.

The pattern also includes stitch counts, suggested bind-off, blocking instructions and a schematic.
