View Full Version : Toasty Twisty (free pattern!)

11-19-2005, 01:35 PM
Hey everybody--
I just designed this quick scarf and am posting the pattern here in case you want to make them for Christmas gifts. This is really, really warm. I did not use any yarn I want to name here to make up the pattern, but suffice it to say that if you use a nice worsted weight, soft yarn it will be nice. Good for kids and adults, male and female. It's cabley but also reversible, with no ugly side! The ends flare nicely as the pattern draws up the fabric somewhat in the body of the scarf.


Materials: 6-8 ounces worsted weight yarn (depending on length you want)
Size 10 knitting needles
Gauge: Not crucial

Note: Slip first stitch of every row as if to purl.

Stitch Explanation: RT (right twist). Knit next 2 stitches together, but do not slip off left needle. Knit into first stitch again, then slip both stitches off the needle.

Cast on 34 stitches.

Rows 1-4: Knit (see note above)

Row 5: Slip 1, K 1. (P2, K2) 8 times.

Row 6: Slip 1, K1. (RT, P2) 7 times. RT, K2.

Row 7: Slip 1, K1. (P2, RT) 7 times. P2, K2.

Row 8: Slip 1, K1. (K2, P2) 7 times. K4.

Repeat rows 5-8 until scarf is desired length.

Knit 4 rows. Bind off.

Here's a close up of the stitch detail because it doesn't show much in the first picture. Both sides look the same:

Oh, I see! Should I erase my post? ;) Thanks Kelly, for letting me know about it, though...I have so many places to check I don't get to it right away, and thank you, Yvonne, for the wonderful scarf pattern!

THANKS Yvonne! I really like that scarf and also it's pretty easy...I'll definitely try it. :D

That is a beautiful scarf!! I want to do it for my mom.
Question though, every k st do I have to do the RT explained above?
Sorry, I am still learning. :blush:

Thanks for sharing!

No, not a RT in every K stitch. The twists are only done on the second and third rows of the main body pattern, on the two knit stitches as they appear on those two rows. The other two rows are K2, P2 with the knit selvedge stitches.

That is a beautiful scarf!
