Swoon is a swooping elongated triangle scarf that is:

  • beginner friendly
  • meditative for all knitters
  • with an 8-row repeat
  • a one-page pattern
  • and just one skein of fingering weight yarn!

Swoon uses one skein of sock yarn in any colorway. It’s inspired by Knitted Wit’s wildly colorful yarn. It works just as beautifully with subtle, tonal, solid, gradient yarns or fade sets.

Swoon’s 8-row repeat is easy to follow and great for movie or zoom-with-friends knitting. It’s one of those “just-one-more-row” patterns and uses every yard of one special skein.

The resulting shape is a very long, shallow triangle.
