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
Provisional co, knit, purl, m1, circ knitting.
One size, women’s.
Scarf measures 3″ wide x 90″ long (or desired length).
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).
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).
Over 1×1 rib and #11 needles, 17 sts in 3″ unstretched.
