Colour Block Scarf

The Woolly Brew Colour Block Scarf free DK knitting pattern

Inspired by the colours used by Georgia Farrell in her new Rowan design collection, My London, our newest shop pattern is knitted in my newest favourite yarn - Rowan Alpaca Soft.


4 colour asymmetrical scarf in rowan alpaca soft dk


Based on our Asymmetrical Scarf, this DK version has the same versatile shape but features a slip stitch edge and bold blocks of colour - creating a striking and cosy scarf that is easy to wear.

The scarf begins with 3 stitches and you repeat just 2 rows, creating a long triangle shape... more scarf like than shawl. It's all knit stitch too, so even simpler.


 

The pattern does specify about 500m of yarn. Rowan Alpaca Soft has 125m per ball. If you use a DK yarn that has less meterage per ball (like Socks Yeah DK which has 112m per 50g) you'll still get a good sized scarf but it will be slightly smaller.

I also think this scarf would look and feel amazing in Rowan Alpaca Classic!

***Update - check out these ideas for using Rico Classic Baby DK ***

You can also knit this scarf using leftovers, like our 4ply scrappy version, striping and blending colours as you like.

A shop printed pattern is free with any purchase and you can download a copy here.

I've also put together 4 kits in Rowan Alpaca Soft. Like all our kits it has a 10% discount compared to buying the yarn separately (it also comes with the pattern... but you will need to add needles!)
