I received a gorgeous hank of Lion Brand Collection® Silk Yarn and have been just itching to use it. But I loved it so much I let it sit and wait for the perfect project. And I found it!! I learned a new knitting stitch and thought it would be awesome for showing off the beauty of this yarn and it did. I am so in love with my new scarf! And of course I wanted to shared my knit scarf pattern with you, my fiber loving friends. 🙂 I hope you love it as much as I do.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful knit stitch and scarf! I’d like to know if this pattern has a particular multiples of stitches… I’d like to make mine wider. Is this based on an even number of stitches?

I’ve just started this pattern and am soooo excited about it. I do have one question. The directions say Rows 17 – 22 Knit every other row What should I do to the row I am not knitting? Purl?
Hi Dee 🙂 For those rows you should be knitting every row (garter stitch), not every other row.

I’m I’ve been making this scarf for years and have sold many of them. People see me working on one and I get an order for one in their favorite color. Fun. I Have a favorite stitch I use for a cowl you can also use as a hood. Great for cold weather. My design. I found a stitch I love and adapted it to a cowl. My first attempt to write a pattern.
How are the yarn overs dropped? I have not come across the stitch/technique before.
Hi Kay 🙂 You can just slip the yarn overs off the needle and it creates those lovely open stitches.
I found I didn`t have enough yarn to make scarf as long as it should be. Now I have to buy more expensive yarn. I followed the directions exactly and used the same yarn as you. What is the problem?
Hmmm. It could be that our gauge is different or that I blocked it longer. Did you try blocking it yet?
Awesome pattern – and I got just the silk yarn for it! Thank you 🙂
This is a lovely scarf, thank you I’m going to make it know, if I make a good job of it I’ll knit them for my family this christmas
Where can buy silk yarn for scarf
You can get it right from the Lion Brand website.
This is such a beautiful scarf – your pattern is a perfect fit for the yarn. Thank you very much for the pattern. I can hardly wait to get the yarn and knit it up!

I have been looking for this pattern! My babysitter taught me this when I was a little girl and I’ve always wanted to try it but couldn’t remember how or what it was called. Thank you for bringing this lost gem back to me!
It’s a beautiful scarf shame I’m unable to make it while trying to read it. My mother tried for years to teach me and I never got it. Now if it was a picture pattern oh yes I can understand that way.
Wow! That is so pretty! I am definitely going to try the double yarn over stitch because it makes it look so lacy and gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!
