Free shop pattern... a simple asymmetrical scarf using 400m of 4ply.

We've used a hank of the gorgeous Colliston Merino Single in Shade G01, but you could use any 4ply, how about one of the Iolair Yarns, Gigha or Luing.

In fact, just change the needle size to suit any yarn and make a fabric that you like. Or use more or less yarn... the pattern is easy to adapt and the scarf shape is versatile too...

You do need to use a circular needle to comfortably work the number of stitches towards the end of the project, but you could start with a straight needle, and move onto a circular when needed.

Measures - approx 180cm, 30cm at deepest

Yarn - at least 365m of 4ply yarn for a decent sized scarf.  We used 1 hank of Colliston Merino Single, but 1 hank of  Iolair Gigha or Luing, and 1 hank of Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply would be lovely too.  For a different effect, try our ‘woollier’ 4plys like Jamieson’s Spindrift (you will need 4 balls) or Armscote Manor 4ply (one hank) 

Needles - circular 3.75mm x 60cm (at least).  Click for our circular needle selection.

you will also need a wool needle.

Techniques - cast on; work flat - back and forth; knit; increase by knitting into front and back (KFB); decrease by knitting 2 together (K2tog); cast off loosely.

If you like the cardigan, it’s called Line Dried. It’s knitted in Socks Yeah DK. You can read more about it here.
