A lightweight, incredibly soft scarf perfect for a cool evening. Knit with 100% bamboo in a simple mesh pattern. Appropriate for beginners and more advanced knitters looking for a simple project that doesn’t require too much concentration.
This reversible scarf is approximately 3" wide and 60" long. To make a wider scarf, cast on a multiple of three stitches plus two (for example, 26, 32, or 38 stitches). To see variations of the pattern knit by others, please see my post titled More mesh scarves.
K1: knit one stitch
K2TOG: knit two stitches together
YO: yarn over
Southwest Trading Company 100% Bamboo (one ball)
Straight needles size US 10
Note: Your scarf-in-progress will look different than mine because it needs to be lightly blocked when finished to flatten it and open up the pattern. I block mine by dampening it with water and laying it flat on a towel on a table.
To knit the scarf:
Cast on 23 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K1 *K1, YO, K2TOG*; repeat from *, end the row with K1
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf reaches desired length, ending with row 3.
Knit two more rows and then bind off.
Lightly block the scarf to flatten it and accentuate the pattern.
Update: Here is an example of the same pattern knit in pink and white bamboo. This is one of my favorite scarves because the bamboo isn't scratchy against my neck, plus the pink just makes me feel pretty.
