Winter should be the time to wrap yourself in something snuggly. This scarf is a quick knit that combines dropped stitches and interlocking loops. It will easily become one of your favorite go-to accessories for winter warmth.
Loops & Threads Cozy Wool (wool/acrylic; 90yds (82m); 4.5 oz (127g)) in Velvet (1 skein) and Fleece (1 skein)
Size US 13 needles (9.0mm)
3 sts and 3 rows in garter stitch = 1″ (2.5 cm)
30″ long and 10.5″ wide when flat.
This scarf is made in two pieces and then connected by “tabs” to create the interlocking loops.
With Color A: CO 8 sts.
Row 1: Sl 1 purlwise, knit 7.
Rows 2-10: Repeat Row 1 nine more times. (This creates a “tab”)
Row 11: Using the Cable Cast on Method, CO 8 additional sts; 16 sts
Row 12- 15: Sl 1 purlwise, knit across
Row 16: Sl 1 purlwise, *yo, K1, repeat from * until end of row; 31 sts
Row 17: Sl 1 purlwise, knit across row letting the yarn over sts drop off the needle without knitting them (creating the dropped stitch). (16 sts)
Repeat Rows 12-17 a total of 17 more times.
Knit 3 more rows.
Now you will begin the second tab. BO 8 sts. Knit the 8 rem sts for 10 more rows. Bind off. You have created Scarf Section A.
Repeat the above pattern with Color B to make the second scarf section.
On Scarf Section A, fold the tab over and sew it to the edge next to it. You have made a loop. Repeat this with the other tab. Two separate loops have been formed.
Now begin intertwining the loops. Take one tab from Scarf Section B and thread it through one of the loops on Scarf Section A. Secure the tab by sewing it to the edge of Scarf Section B. You have created interlocking loops. Repeat this with the other tab. The two sections are now connected
