This charming little scarf is perfect for everyday wear. Orbit has an elongated asymmetric triangle shape that’s easy to wrap around the neck. It’s a fun and quick knit with garter stitch and eyelet stripes. All you need is just 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 an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
