One Hank Scarf – Crafting with Corona V

This is one for the knitters!

Go do some stash diving and take out 100g of the finest and best sock yarn you have. Why? Because you are worth it, and you deserve it. If this doesn’t make sense to you, read this blog before you continue.

If you want to make a shawl, you will need 200-300 gram depending on the size you want. Simply continue until you have the desired size before you cast off.


  • 100 g fingering (200-300 g if you want to make a shawl)
  • 4 mm circular needles
  • 5.5 mm circular needles


  • inc – increase
  • k – knit
  • kfb – knit into the front and the back of the next stitch (increase)
  • k2tog – knit the next two stitches together
  • p – purl
  • rs – right side
  • slk – slip the next stitch knit-wise
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • yo – yarn over
  • ws – wrong side


Using the 4mm needles, cast on 12 sts using any cast on method. Continue to knit with the same needles.

Row 1 (ws):     kfb, (yo, k1) x8 times, kfb, k1, p1 (22 sts)

Row 2 (rs) and every alternate row: slk1, knit to end

Row 3: kfb, (yo, k2tog) x8 times, kfb, k1, k2tog, p1 (23 sts)

Row 4: as row 2.

Row 5: kfb, (yo, k2tog) x8 times, kfb, k till 3 sts remain, k2tog, p1 (1 st inc)

Repeat rows 4-5 until you only have enough yarn to cast off. Use a 5.5mm needle to ensure a loose cast off.

  1. Your scarf is lovely and I can’t wait to cast on. HOWEVER, there is no ROW 4 on your printed pattern. Do you mean row 3 and 5?

    1. Sjo. I nearly had a heart attack. No it is correct as row 2 is marked: row 2 and every alternate row. But I will change it just to prevent somebody else from getting confused. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for the wake up call…. I was gifted some gorgeous malabrigo yarn and it’s been in my closet, waiting for the ‘perfect’ pattern.

    I’ll get it out and make something special for me – EVERYTHING I’ve made has been for someone else.

    Stay well and keep safe.

  3. Wish I had circular knitting needles…. It is stunning!

    1. You can use straight if you want. I don’t use straight at all – very hard on the wrists.

  4. I wish I could see a photo of the scarf out in full too, so I know what it is to look like as I knit it. It looks like it has such a nice drape to it.
    Thank u for sharing this pattern

    1. It is a normal boomerang shape.

      1. Boomerang? Does that mean asymetrical? No pointy vee, I hope..

        1. Asymmetrical. Like the shape of a boomerang.

  5. Allo,
    Loving your pattern, but I have a question. What does SLK1 mean? You have SLK in the abbbreviations, but SLK1 in the pattern. Can you please explain what we are supposed to do?
    Thank you for your help. 🙂

    1. slk1 – slip one stitch knitwise. slk2 – slit two stitches knitwise – not that I use it in this pattern, but I have learned that if I only use slk, I will inevitable get a question of how many should I slip?

      1. Thank you, I appreciate it…It’s a lovely pattern. 🙂

  6. You mention 4 mm and 5.5 mm needles in the requirements. I don’t see where in the pattern the sizes are used. Can you help me

    1. Knit with smaller one, cast off with bigger one.

  7. I love love love the pattern. I have a cake of stroll gradient and it will be perfect! I was desperately looking for something to knit during this stay at home time. I love the way it wraps around the collar and will enjoy that part the most! Thank you again Hilda!

  8. What type of yarn did you use for the scarf in the picture? I think it is beautiful.

    1. It is a Merino / Linen blend from Linda’s Treehouse, fingering weight.

  9. I am having a difficult time getting the stitches to come out right on row 1. I do the stitches as indicated kfb(yo,k1) x8 times, kfb, k1, p1. It does not come out to the 22 stitches that the pattern indicates.
    Please help.

  10. I got it.

  11. Hi Hilda: I have 962 yards of Loops & Threads Shimmer Shawl #3 dk weight (very light). I thought it was a fingering when I bought it. It is 61% cotton and 39% acrylic. It is mostly light grey but it has a section of purple and pink then grey again. This will knit up as a stripe. Will this be suitable for this pattern? Beautiful pattern and thank you.

    1. I think it will be gorgeous.

  12. Helen: Sorry but it’s me again. Is this scarf a triangle shape? Thank you.

    1. Boomerang.

  13. Can you please tell me the dimensions of the finished scarf? Very beautiful work, thank you.

  14. How do you get the a boomerang shape and loop pattern on one side and knit pattern on the other. there are not enough increased stitches to achieve this??

    1. Just follow the pattern. It will work out.

  15. Could you show a picture of the finished piece laid out? I’d appreciate seeing the overall shape and pattern. Thank you.

  16. I would appreciate it if you would clarify for me how many stitches should be in Row 5, the first increase. I want to be sure I’m reading the pattern correctly before I keep going. I love this pattern!! Thank you very much.

  17. It seems like I’ve been knitting forever. It’s beautiful, but approximately how long is the end with the pattern?

  18. I’m sorry I started this pattern with a #5 yarn. It’s coming out well. I’m a tad confused though. The shape is supposed to be a boomerang , does that mean there is a decrease in stitches towards the end? Sorry if this has been asked before. I’m new to knitting.

    1. Hi Catrina
      You will continually increase twice on the one side and decrease once on the other side to ‘shift’ the shape while at the same time going wider and wider. In the beginning this will seem weird, but the cast off edge is actually one long leg of the boomerang. Just keep going. It will start to make sense towards the end.
