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.

Requirements

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

Abbreviations

  • 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

Pattern

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.

  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.
    Thanks,

  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.
