Clara's Cotton Scarf

A couple of months ago I was making a scarf for my sister. My friend Clara admired it ~ so I decided to make one for her too as a surprise gift! It is made with cotton yarn in a lovely raspberry colour.

It's totally reversible, and it drapes beautifully.
 
 

 

CLARA'S COTTON SCARF

 

Using 5mm needles, cast on 25sts (or any odd number of sts)

 

 

1st Row:  S1, knit to end of the row

 

Repeat this row 4 times more

 

6th Row (Eyelet Row):  s1, k1, * k2tog, yrn, repeat from * to last 3sts, k3

 

Work 1st Row 6 times

 

Pattern Repeat ~

 

** Work eyelet row

 

Work 1st Row 6 times **

 

 

Repeat these 7 rows until the scarf is the length required

 

I worked until I had almost used 2 x 50g balls

 

Finish by casting off on the last row of a pattern repeat.

 

 

Please note: as you follow the instructions you will find that the eyelet pattern is worked on alternate right & wrong sides ~ this makes the scarf reversible

  1. I was convinced that was a crochet scarf until I read the pattern. It's amazing that it used less than 100g. I'm saving this pattern as I have some cotton yarn and didn't know what to do with it. Now I do!

    1. Hello. yrn - yarn round needle - is the same as yarn over. Hope that helps!.
      In different countries we use different wording. Wouldn't it be so much simpler if there was a universal terminology!
      Happy Knitting. M

  15. How long is it suppose to be? I used two 50 gram balls and it isn't near as long as the picture

  16. Is this correct that you work the first 5 rows as sl1, k to end, then eyelet row but for the rest of the pattern, you work the sl1, k row 6 times and then the eyelet? Just wanted to clarify before I start.

    1. Hello Linda. Yes you are correct.
      The border looks good if you do it this way.
      Happy Knitting. Marianna

  20. HI. Can you tell me the exact yarn you used for this beautiful scarf?

  21. Hi Marianna,
    Thank you for the clear instructions.
    This is my first attempt to knit a scarf and it has come out very well. I used acrylic yarn.

  23. Just wondering 2 50g balls of what? what yarn did you use, this really is lovely.

  24. What is the pattern for the edging, please?

  25. This scarf is beautiful! I'd love to make it for someone as a gift. I was just wondering, is it possible to connect the ends to make this an infinity scarf? I'm new to knitting but the pattern seems do-able to me, she's just always wearing infinity scarves. Any input would be so helpful! This truly is a gorgeous scarf in such a great color! Thanks for any help you can give 🙂

  26. Hi,

    I'm trying this project and am confused. with 25 stitch, in my eyelet row, my last three stitches comes after k2tog. If I do k3 at the end, I end up with 24 stitches, so I do yarn over and k2 at the last three stitches. What do I do wrong? I'm a total newbie so I'm not entirely sure if my interpretation of k2tog and yarn over are correct. I just assume if I decrease and increase 1 stitch respectively, I will end up with same number of stitches in a row. Do I do this wrong?

  27. I love your scarf and would love to make it. Can you say what weight yarn you used. 5mm needles suggests worsted or aran to me but it could be a dk or sport. Thank you for sharing the pattern
