At last, I have written up my first pattern. I hope you enjoy knitting this scarf as much as I did ~ Happy Holidays!
Penelope Cobblestone Scarf by Jennifer Moretti
Inspired by the 2006 movie Penelope starring Christina Ricci and James McAvoy. My niece requested a scarf like Penelope's to make her Halloween costume complete last year and a really cute, cozy scarf was born. This is my first pattern write up ever, it has not been test knit, gentle input is greatly appreciated.
- Size: 8 inches wide and just over 60 inches long - shown in movie approx 80 inches long
- Yarn: Lion Brand Baby Soft Solid (60% Acrylic/40% Nylon; 459yd/141g) in 2 colors: [MC1] Pistachio and [MC2] Violet. Red Heart Ltd Designer Sport (100% Acrylic; 270 yr/85g) [CC] Black Note: I used approx three quarters of each of all three skeins for a scarf just over 60 inches - approx 345 yds of each MC, and approx 210 yards of CC.
- Needle: US 5 [3.75mm] 16" circular needle or double pointed needles (magic loop would work too)
- Gauge: oops, lost my notes - I did go down one needle size than recommended on yarn label to get a slightly denser fabric.
- Notions: tapestry needle
- Stitch pattern:
Begin with CC, CO 80 sts, join to work in round careful not to twist.
Work 3 - 7 rounds stockinette stitch (or desired length for rolled edge).
Continue in Cobblestone Stitch pattern for desired length.
Then, with CC, work 3 - 7 rounds in stockinette stitch (or desired length for rolled edge).
To finish, knot off or weave in ends inside tube, may sew tube closed or leave open.
