The Turning Corners Scarf features a geometric mosaic colorwork pattern with contrasting colors. The chevron pattern transitions from a dark shade to light, then back to dark. It’s knitted in garter stitch rather than stockinette, so it can properly lie flat. The scarf is worked from the ends toward the center in two pieces and grafted.

Needles Size 8 (5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Waste yarn for provisional cast-on; size H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook; tapestry needle.

Gauge 22 sts and 38 rows = 4” in charted patt.

Notes

  • This scarf begins with a provisional cast-on and is worked back and forth in rows from the center to the ends.
  • Each row of the chart represents two rows, a right-side row and a wrong-side row, both worked with the same color yarn (the color shown in the column to the right of the chart). The colors alternate every two rows, with Rows 1 and 2 being worked with the contrasting color. Work the stitch to the right of the chart, work the main part of the chart, then work the stitch to the left of the chart. On main-color right-side rows, knit all main-color stitches and slip all contrasting-color stitches purlwise with yarn in back. On main-color wrong-side rows, knit all main-color stitches and slip all contrasting-color stitches purlwise with yarn in front. On contrasting-color right-side rows, knit all contrasting-color stitches and slip all main-color stitches purlwise with yarn in back. On contrasting-color wrong-side rows, knit all contrasting-color stitches and slip all main- color stitches purlwise with yarn in front.
  • When working Rows 1–6 of Chart A, join a second strand of contrasting-color yarn to work the contrasting-color stitches for the second half of the chart to avoid having a very long yarn float across the back of the work. On Row 9, work from one ball of contrasting-color yarn across the entire row and break the second strand. Similarly, when working Rows 49–54 of Chart D, join a second strand of main-color yarn to work the main-color stitches for the second half of the chart.
