Scarf knitting pattern



Our cover scarf looks like a complicated stripe, intarsia, or woven design but is the result of short-rows repeating across the length of the piece, creating undulating waves of color. Garter stitch and a long-color-repeat yarn marry beautifully.

NOTES

Scarf is worked in a short-row technique that reworks the standard "wrap and turn" into a "turn and double stitch" manipulation (T&DS).

At the end of each wave, the stitch markers will shift 5 stitches to the left. In Row 2 (the long WS row), the markers move back 2 stitches, ready to begin a new 'tide'.

Slip stitch purlwise with yarn in front.
