Tipsy ScarfWhen I first discovered The Heathen Housewife’s (Shelly Kang) Blankie Tutorial, I was inspired to translate the techniques into a short scarf using sock yarn. The small size of the squares means each only uses 2.5 g of yarn. When using variegated sock yarn, each square turns out different than its neighbour.
This pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner and can be worked in any fingering weight yarn. It is particularly suited to variegated or handpainted sock yarns but would be equally attractive in solid coloured yarn.
This scarf is worked one square at a time, building off the previous mitred squares. The size can easily be adjusted by either adding additional foundation squares (width), working in thicker yarn and a larger needle (length and width) or working extra rows (length).
Yarn A: 460 yards fingering weight sock yarn (sample worked in Mondial Ciao, colour 650)
Yarn B: 88 to 175 yards fingering weight sock yarn (sample worked in Shelridge Farm Soft Touch Ultra Solids, colour Nutmeg)
Gauge: each mitred square is 3” x 3”
2.5 mm or US #1.5, (or size required to obtain gauge)
9.5″ x 35″ blocked (23.75 cm x 87.5 cm)
This design was originally offered as a three part workshop at Shall We Knit and hard (paper) copies of this pattern can be ordered from there.
