in Lace Weight and Fingering Yarn
copywrite Elizabeth Lovick 2005/7

Scarves are a good way of trying out new patterns and yarns and always useful (Christmas is always coming!!).

Things you need to know need to make the scarves:

Fingering (4 ply) scarves:
About 100 grams fingering (4 ply) yarn for each scarf
Two 6 mm needles (US 10); row counter


Lace Weight Scarves
About 60 grams lace weight yarn for each scarf
Two 4.5 mm needles (US 7); row counter

Scarves are about 7 ins wide, 60 ins long

The Stitch Patterns

Instructions are given for a variety of patterns. They are in increasing order of difficulty – but all are straight forward. All have pattern only on the odd numbered rows, with the even rows being plain knit or purl. Most of the patterns can be made "double sided" by knitting the alternate rows rather than purling.

These are old Shetland patterns. They were used to make garments to sell, and therefore it was important that the patterns, while looking complex, were actually straightforward to knit! The women and girls would knit anywhere and everywhere, so they could not rely on written instructions: the next row had to follow on instinctively.

New Shell is a two row pattern, one of which is purl.
Horseshoe is an eight row pattern, including four purl rows.
Fir Cone is a twenty row pattern, but with only two pattern rows to remember.
Chequered Acre is a sixteen row pattern with only two pattern rows to remember.
Candlelight is a sixteen row pattern based on stocking stitch
