27 sts = about 5 in. (12.5 cm) in pattern.
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

PATTERN STITCH (worked over a multiple of 3 sts) Note: Rows 1-4 of pattern are worked using 2 colors.

Carry the unused color along the side edge of your work.

Row 1 (Wrong Side): With first color, purl.

Row 2: With first color, k2, *yo, k3, pass first of the 3 knit sts over the 2nd and 3rd sts and off the needle; rep from * to last st, k1.

Row 3: With second color, purl.

Row 4: With second color, k1, *k3, pass first of the 3 knit sts over the 2nd and 3rd sts and off the needle, yo; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.

Rep Rows 1-4 for Pattern st.


Scarf is worked in sections.

Each section changes color but uses the same pattern st.


Each section of the Scarf is worked for 5 in.

(12.5 cm).


We did not add a border to our model Scarf.

If you feel you would like a border, you should have enough yarn remaining to work one.

An easy border would be to work single crochet evenly spaced around the outside edge.

Try a size I-9 (5.5 mm) crochet hook for this.

If you prefer to knit the border, you could pick up and k sts evenly spaced from the RS along one side of the Scarf at a time, then without working any rows, bind off.


When working the yo, you are simply wrapping the yarn over your needle.

The yo does not use any of your sts.


Rows 2 and 4, which include yo's, also include a st that is passed over other sts.

This means that your st count will not change.


SCARF With A, cast on 27 sts.

Section I With A as first color and B as second color rep Rows 1-4 of Pattern st until section I measures about 5 in.

(12.5 cm).

End with a Row 3.

Note: End with a Row 3 means that the last row you work should be a Row 3, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a Row 4.

Section II With B as first color and C as second color, work Row 4 of Pattern st then rep Rows 1-4 of Pattern st until section II measures about 5 in.

(12.5 cm).

End with a Row 3.

Section III With C as first color and A as second color, work as for section II.

Rep sections I-III until piece measures about 50 in.

(127 cm) from beginning.

End with a Row 3.

Bind off.

FINISHING Weave in ends.

k = knit
rep = repeat(s)(ing)
RS = right side
