For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank each of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK in shade A, shade B and shade C.
WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK (100% British BlueFaced Leicester Wool, 225m/246yds per 100g)
I used shade Undyed Ecru for shade A, shade Undyed Light Brown for shade B and shade Undyed Brown for shade C.
Metres/Yardage for each shade: 225m/246yds.
Total metres/yardage needed: approx. 660m/722yds to 675m/738yds
Tension: 30 stitches and 44 rows to 10cm/4ins square over pattern using 4mm needles.
Skill Level: ♦ ♦ ♦ ◊ ◊
Measurements: 17cm x 178cm.
My design ideas and advice: I am so excited by the way the stitch patterning works with the 3 row striped pattern. It looks like little spots, while the reverse of the scarf works just as well as the front. This is why I love knitting, small simple details can create an impressive look!
If you have seen this scarf in my Skipton Studio you may have seen the shorter version that’s knitted with Knoll Mohair Tweed. This only uses one 50g ball of 3 shades, is half the length and I joined the cast on and cast off edges to make a cowl.
