Seventh Heaven
What knitter does not have a box or bag filled with small quantities of fingering-weight yarn? Seventh Heaven answers the question of what to do with them – knit them up into a beautiful scarf! With its combination of garter ridges and slip stitches, Seventh Heaven is simple yet fun to knit. The colourful I-cord edges make it even more special.

Bonus
The pattern includes lots of tips for choosing and using your own yarns and colours.

Finished measurements
Approx. 41 cm (16”) wide x 2.05 m (81”) long.

Yarn
MC: 4 skeins of Isager Sock Yarn (50 g/193 m; 40% alpaca, 40% merino, 20% nylon), shown in shade 100 Navy blue. Or 200 g of a similar fingering-weight yarn.
CC: 160 g of fingering-weigh/sock yarn remnants (+ some extra just in case).

Gauge
26 sts x 42 rows = 10 x 10 cm (4” x 4”) in garter and slip stitch pattern, after soaking and drying.
Gauge is not crucial, but differences will affect the yarn quantity needed and the size of the finished scarf.
