Ready to be test knit!

Written for The Tinsmith’s Wife in Comfort, Texas. This would look great in one color too or hand paint! You can see the sample at the little shop in Comfort!

Yarn: Organik by Kelbourne Woolens

Needle: US 7 – 8 (depending on your tension), 32” circular

Gauge: 4 – 4.5 sts/inch (but not important)

 

Note: I cast on the smallest number. This was a sample for the shop. However, if I was making this for a friend, I would cast on for the larger length.

 

Also this pattern is designed to slant. Make sure you place a stitch marker after joining.

 

Cast on 121 (143, 165). Join in to the round and knit one round.

 

BARLEY SUGAR PATTERN for Color A, B and C

Rows 1 – 3: skp, k6, yo, k3

Row 4: knit all stitches

Rows 5 – 7: skp, k5, k1 tbl, yo, k1 tbl, k2

Row 8: yo, s2kpsso, yo, k4, k2 tbl, k2

Row 9: k7, k2 tbl, k2

Row 10: skp, k5, k1 tbl, yo, k1 tbl, k2

 

CHANGING COLORS

The best way to do this is to slip your first stich, knit the next stitch with your new color, then pass the slipped stitch over. Your new color pops right up.

 

Smaller Size

Color A: Repeat Pattern Twice (1 skein)

Color B: Repeat Pattern Once (1 skein)

Color C: Repeat Pattern Once (1 skein)

 

Larger Sizes

Color A: Repeat Pattern Twice (2 skeins)

Color B: Repeat Pattern Once (2 skeins)

Color C: Repeat Pattern Once (2 skeins)

 

FINISHING THE PIECE

Row 1: s2kpsso, k5, kyok, k3

Row 2: knit all stitches

Row 3: bind off two stitches, yo, pass bind off stitch over yarn over, * knit one off left needle then pass stitch over, yo, pass stitch over; repeat from * until you are done binding off. Weave in the ends.

 

skp – slip one stitch knit-wise, knit one, pass slipped stitch over and off (decrease)yo – wrap your yarn from front to back on right needle

tbl – through the back loop (gives the stitch a little lift)

s2kpsso – slip two stitches knit-wise, knit one stitch, pass two slipped stitches over and off (decrease)

Game Day Scarf

GAME DAY SCARF!

gameday

This scarf was inspired by Newport Harbor High School’s Football team.

Recommended Yarn: This is for a man. Use a washable yarn if giving to someone outside the family circle! I recommend blending Aslan Trends Invernal (Merino/Angora) with a Kraemer Perfection DK or Cascade 220 superwash if giving to someone who will listen to your care instructions.

Needle: US 9. Gauge is up to you. My material is more dense to make the pattern pop.

Cast On 29 Stitches.

You will knit the first and last stitch on ALL rows.

Row 1:  k1, (k8, p1) x 3, k1

Row 2:  k1, (k2, p7) x 3, k1

Row 3:  k1, (k6, p3) x 3, k1

Row 4:  k1, (k4, p5) x 3, k1

Row 5:  k1, (k4, p5) x 3, k1

Row 6:  k1, (k6, p3) x 3, k1

Row 7:  k1, (k2, p7) x 3, k1
