Double Pointed Scarf
Can you knit a rectangle (to an exact size?)
Do you struggle with measuring accurate gauge?Here's a great project that will help you get more comfortable with measuring gauge AND confirming that you are measuring correctly.
Is also a great opportunity for stash busing and playing with stitch patterns.
The key to the positioning of the points of this scarf is knitting to the exact pattern dimensions.
Swatching is NOT optional!
- For nice drape and position of the points, knit an adult size at 16" x 20" (40cm x 50cm)
- The rectangle is folded in half from opposite corners
- The corners are then joined with a button
- Because both the "right" and "wrong" sides of the knitting are public facing, a reversible stitch pattern is recommended.
The DIY Pattern
- Choose a soft drapey yarn and stitch pattern
- Because the rectangle is folded in half from corner-to-corner, the size of the rectangle determines not only the depth of the draping, but the position of the points.
It's important to establish your gauge and knit the rectangle to the correct size
- Reversible Stitch Pattern Suggestions:
- Full Needle Rib
- Fisherman Rib
- Ribbing (any needle arrangement 1x1 | 5x5)
- Garter Carriage knit and purl designs
- Tuck Lace
- We used a boucle yarn in plain stockinette. Because of the texture of the yarn, the right and wrong side of the knitting is similar.
- Add a button or ties
