The Snowfall Scarf Pattern
Scarves hold a certain amount of romanticism for me and I’m trying my hardest to explain to you why that is? Gosh, I don’t know. Perhaps it has something to do with the movies that start in the Autumn when kids are back at college? Leaves on the ground, college scarf around their neck. Or maybe it’s to do with kissing in the snow? I remember kissing my husband in the snow last February when it snowed really hard. We were both wrapped up warm as we wanted to be out in it for a long time before getting too cold and even Robert the Husband ( he who HATES wool by his skin) was donning a scarf. I think men in scarves look sexy.
On a more practical level this scarf is really enjoyable to wear. It’s warm, long and soft but at the same time chunky. I’m publishing the pattern for this early in the season as some of you may want to make this scarf as a Christmas gift. Enjoy making it.
To make this scarf in exactly the way that I have made it you will need -
12 mm needles (UK) / Size 17 needles (US )
x 4 Rowan Kidsilk Aura – Shade 755
x 6 Sirdar Big Softie – Shade 0330
Cast on 23 stitches knitting with BOTH yarns simultaneously. You’ll be knitting with both yarns as if they were one.
Knit 1 , Pearl 1 for 150 rows but remember to start and finish each and every row with Knit Stitch
How to make the tassels -
- Cut four lengths of both yarns that are 24 inches in length
- Repeat this process twenty times – making ten tassels for each end of the scarf
- Thread the lengths through the bottom of the scarf
- Match up the ends of the lengths – essentially folding the lengths in half equally
- Wrap a twelve inch length of the Rowan Kidsilk around the top of the tassel several times, tightly.
Nice and ‘tassely’!
I’m five feet four inches tall so you can see how long it is. But this isn’t really the way I’d wear it on a day to day basis…….
I wrap it round, again and again and then pull at the neck so that it becomes baggier, looser and sits there like a giant protector.
Dear me, check out the pills on my cardi!! I’ve been mooching about in comfy clothes for too long it would seem. We need to get some glamor around here, NOW!!
At least I know what my next knitted project is to be.
ENJOY this time of year. Every single day, hour and minute. It won’t be like this again for at least another twelve months!!!!
