Inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night, the colors of the Whirl Scarf swirl and twirl in spirals and eddies. Double knit, the scarf is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on either side. Work the scarf in navy and gold to represent whirling stars on a night sky or choose new colors for the swirls.

Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The scarf is approximately 65” (165.1 cm) in length, but can be increased or decreased in approximate 7” (17.78 cm) intervals. The scarf is approximately 5.25” (13.33 cm) wide.

Materials

  • Size 2 US (2.75 mm) needles.
  • Size 1 US (2.25 mm) needles (optional for a neater cast on edge).
  • Approximately 400-425 yards (366-389 m) each of two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn.
  • Needle to weave in ends.

Errata

The initial version of the pattern (v1.0) had a mistake in the cast on count. The correct cast on count should be 84 stitches or 42 pairs of stitches. Version 1.1 has the correction.
