Although I love to make shawls, it seems nearly everyone I knit for wants a scarf or a snood.

So in an effort to give them what they want, I’ve been making scarves and snoods with the stitch I used for Lagom.

The stitch gives you “just enough” (lagom) to do to hold your interest, and the icord edges on both sides give a nice neat finish.

I have included 2 gauges and 2 different stitch counts, but you can also add more repeats for a wider scarf if you like, just be sure to allow more yarn.

Works well with sport - aran weight.

Allow approx. 300m/330yds for a snood
(approx. 19 x 130cm/7.5 x 50”)
Allow approx. 400m/440yds for a scarf
(approx. 19 x 150cm/7.5 x 60”)
Allow more if you want a longer or wider item.

There’s also a hat with the same stitch: Lagom hat
