ALLURE SCARF Easy MATERIALS • 1 ball of Patons Allure 100g • one pair of 5.50mm knitting needles • matching sewing thread and sewing needle NOTE – Due to this knitting technique, the finished length and width of the scarf will be variable. The distance between the stitches and the number of stitches worked in each row will determine the dimensions. The scarf will lengthen when worn causing it to become a little narrower. Our pictured scarf is worked with 5 sts: working with more stitches will make your scarf wider but shorter. NEATENING THE END Spread approx 10cm of the yarn widthways. Trim to neaten the end, then fold this end over twice. Using matching sewing thread and sewing needle, sew hem neatly in place (pic 1). 1 TO BEGIN KNITTING CAST ON BY PICKING UP STITCHES ALONG ONE EDGE Spread the yarn widthways for the next 15cm. To pick up the first stitch, holding the yarn in your left hand and the knitting needle in your right hand, insert the needle from back to the front through a hole at the top edge of the hem, then pick up another 4 stitches in this way, about 3-4cm apart along the same edge (pic 2). Turn your work so that the needle with the stitches is now in your left hand. 2 Insert your right-hand needle into the front of the first st on the lefthand needle, then through the edge of the unworked yarn, approx 3-4cm along (pic 3). Draw this new edge stitch through the old stitch and onto your right-hand needle, at the same time slipping the old stitch off the left-hand needle – one stitch is now completed. Repeat this process for remaining stitches, spreading the yarn widthways as needed and always working along the same edge. 3 WORKING YOUR SCARF LENGTH TO NEATEN CAST-OFF EDGE Turn your work and continue working each row in the same manner until approximately 15cm of yarn remains. Trim remaining yarn to 4cm. Spread the mesh, fold over twice and sew neatly in position (as at start of scarf). If desired, spread any areas not fully open along the outside edge of scarf ruffle. TO CAST OFF Knit first 2 stitches of row. Using the tip of your left-hand needle, pick up first knitted stitch, take it over 2nd stitch and off end of needle. Knit another stitch and repeat this process until the last stitch is left on right-hand needle. Pull remaining yarn end through this stitch and pull up firmly to fasten off.
