Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.


2 or 3 skeins of Baa Ram Ewe Titus Yarn (
5.5mm Needles - Straight or Circular
Tapestry needle


23cm x 120 (2 skeins) or 180 (3 skeins)


2 skeins will give a scarf that is 120cm long, this is perfect for wearing open over the neck, or draping over the shoulders and pinned to form a small wrap.

3 skeins will give a scarf that is 180cm long, a more traditional length if you wish to double it over and tie it off

Keep in mind that the yarn is very warm and the fabric, though drapes well, is quite thick.

The first row of the knitting is fiddly and will make you doubt doing this pattern but so long as you knit fairly loosely the next rows are much quicker - I was able to knit this scarf in 3 days, little slower than stockinette but faster than most textured patterns.
