Thanks for checking out the Slanted scarf! If you like this pattern, feel free to take a look at some of my other patterns, and follow me on instagram at knitaholicto to see what else I am working on.

This unisex, ‘rectangular’ scarf pattern is a simple knit that uses slipped, crossed stitches to create monochromatic stripes while alternating between two contrasting yarn colors. It is stylish and light but also functional and dense enough to fend off a chilly breeze on a cold winter day. Composed mostly of the same four repeated rows, this scarf pattern is quite easy to learn and memorize and is a great pattern to knit when watching tv or multi-tasking. Whether you are knitting it for yourself, a friend, or a family member, the future recipient is bound to love it.

There are two sizes available, Regular and Large. These sizes refer to the scarf width, as the length is highly adjustable.
Regular size (shown in sample):
• Length (variable): 178 cm / 70 in
• Width: 13 cm / 5 in
Large size:
• Length (variable): 178 cm / 70 in
• Width: 18 cm / 7 in

This pattern requires 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn with contrasting colors. The sample shown used 2 skeins of Yarn Indulgences Zed Merino (1 skein in Silver Bells and 1 skein in Fir). Each skein had approximately 420 yards to begin with. For the Regular size, after reaching 72 inches in length and casting off, about 20 grams of each skein remained. Thus, if you choose to knit the Large size, it is likely only necessary to use 500-yard skeins to reach about 60 inches in length.

If you have any questions about this pattern, don’t hesitate to reach out to me! I will try to add relevant information here as it comes.
