Waterfall Lace Scarf Pattern

Waterfall lace scarf pattern
Waterfall lace scarf pattern

Knitting lace has become one of my passions lately. Although some lace patterns can be very complicated, this one is pretty easy and a great project for someone who is just starting out learning to knit lace.

The pattern has both written instructions and a chart which makes it very easy for someone to learn how to knit from charts because you have the written version to follow along with as well.

I am using a fine lace weight cotton for my scarf so I have added a few extra repeats of the pattern in mine, but you can make this scarf as narrow or as wide as you like and use whatever yarn you have on hand. Perfect as a stash busting project.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Length after blocking: 70-74 inches

Width after blocking: approx. 6 inches

(Length and width before blocking: 48-52 inches x approx. 4 inches)

MATERIALS

300-400 yards of any soft fingering weight wool yarn

US #5/3.75mm or US #6/4.0mm straight or circular needles. (I recommend swatching with two or three

different needle sizes, then blocking your swatch to determine which needle size will produce the most

pleasing fabric with the yarn you are using. Swatching will also help you determine how many repeats of

the stitch pattern to do to get your desired scarf length.)

GAUGE

Gauge is not crucial and will vary depending on yarn used.

The Marvelous Mobius – Moebius Scarf Pattern

What is a moebius?

Mobius Scarf
Mobius Scarf

Whether you spell it mobius or moebius, this cowl type of scarf is a truly marvelous invention when it comes to keeping you warm. The mobius is one of the most versatile accessories you can make. If you make it cowl sized, you can wear it around your neck or pull it up and it becomes a hood. Make it larger and it can also become a wrap.
Basically, a moebius is a scarf that is sewn in a loop with a twist in the middle. It is the twist that makes it so functional. The twisted scarf fits just perfectly under your chin and adds extra warmth just where it’s needed most.
A mobius is the perfect scarf for children as well. We are always cautioned against the ends of scarves being dangerous in the playground because they could get tangled in climbing equipment and cause strangulation. With a mobius there are no worries because there are no ends to dangle. They are very kid friendly because they just slip over the head like a hat and do not require them to know how to tie a knot. Especially good for your school aged children who need to be independent.
This is a very easy knit pattern that is suitable for beginner and advanced knitters. Done in Thick and Quick yarn, it can be whipped up in an evening making it a great last minute gift idea.

Knit Mitten Scarf Pattern

Mitten Scarf

In my search for some great knitting patterns for making Christmas gifts this year I came across this very unique scarf – mitten combination scarf and I just love it. I am a huge lover of all things unusual so this one really struck my fancy. I may even adapt it to add in a hood on the scarf and have all angles covered. LOL

Skills Needed

Provisional co, knit, purl, m1, circ knitting.

Size

One size, women’s.

Finished measurements

Scarf measures 3″ wide x 90″ long (or desired length).

Materials

Yarn

3 skeins Rowan Polar (100g/109 yards, 60% wool 30% alpaca 10% acrylic (sadly discontinued).

I believe the replacement would be 4-5 skeins Rowan Little Big Wool (60 m/50g, 67% wool, 33% nylon) or any chunky weight yarn, approximately 300 yards (for a 90″ long scarf, approximately 250 yards for 60″ scarf).

Needles

US #11 for the scarf, #9 (either dpn’s or two circular) for the mittens (this makes the fabric denser and warmer for the mittens).

Gauge

Over 1×1 rib and #11 needles, 17 sts in 3″ unstretched.
