I asked this on Ravelry, but thought I would ask here too. I was wondering if anyone can identify the stitch used in this scarf?

(I hope this is allowed.)

They look like stockinette, but I wonder if maybe some of them are twisted.. :think:

Thanks, she was a Ragdoll, too! She passed away this summer after 19 yrs. I miss her a lot.

It looks like some may be slipped too. Like k1 slip 1 across, purl back then slip the ones that were knit before and knit the ones that were slipped.

Thanks, I'll give that a try too.:heart:


I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

Here's my Tiko. He's about 6 years old now.

Awww... Tiko is a pretty kitty! Gotta love Ragdolls pretty blue eyes!

Slip stitch sounds like a good idea to try. :thumbsup:

2 really pretty cats, I have to say. I met one of those cats this spring and the personalty really comes across quickly with those intense eyes.

To the scarf: I'd like to help. but I only the the main page when following the link. I'd search for the scarf on my own but without a hint that may be less effective. Can you make a fresh link or tell me what to search for?

That link should take you to the scarf. It's called 'women's soma swirl scarf'.

maybe that is a question of where you log in from. I get a page that makes me select if I want the UK Sweden or Rest of Europe.

The name brought google results, though. The best pic I could find is here:
http://www.outdoorsporting.com/family/6182/display.html

I would think that that is ribbing, slanting because of increasing on one side and decreasing on the other. The ribs with different width.

Just: what I see does not line up with the descriptions I read above (suzeeq and Jan) - so maybe I found the wrong scarf?

Is that the one you mean?
It looks a lot like what I am thinking of making for my mother for x-mas, just I want to throw in some cables. A pattern, though, I do not have. My idea was spaned by the Lanesplitter skirt (found on ravelry). Wider ribs, cables added, and maybe small and big ribs... I have not started knitting it, yet.

1 stitch increase on one side, 1 stitch decrease on the other, every row or every second row (looks like it here, if you ask me). With doing it every row you would slant too fast and the angle would be different.

Weird, same name, different scarf.

I found a better pic of it..

I just can't see the stitches close enough with my monitor for some reason. :??

I'm about to try the slip stitch pattern. I just spent an hour untangling a mess of sock yarn for another project, LOL.

I'm not sure how you would go about re-creating either of the scarves posted ... I just thought I'd point out that Hyperactive is looking at a different scarf pattern than the original poster.

They're both really pretty patterns ... I'd be interested to see if you end up figuring out how to re-create it!



ETA: Oops ... Leeniex beat me to it! lol

really strange... same name.

I would almost assume it is a form of hering bone pattern. Wouldn't you think that is has similar aspects?

It may not entirely be that but it might be suitable for you? I can not see the pic very close, either. The photo quality is just not good enough I guess.

Thanks everyone! Suzeeq, that is very similar to the pic and I think I will complete it like you told me to.:cheering:

I'll post a pic when I'm done, I'm using bulky so it will knit up quickly.

Thanks so much!:muah:

The other thing it could be is knit with different needle sizes. Like a 9 on the RS rows and 13 on the WS rows.

the outer edges are wavy / uneven which is strange for a machine knit scarf. So yes, you may be very right.... maybe that is different sizes on each row?

Ugh. It's exactly what I wanted but it curls so badly. I don't know why I didn't think of that, it's just basically stockinette. Oh well. I'll have to try some other stuff.
