A couple of years ago I made this plaited scarf. It’s based on a very pretty scarf I saw in a shop. I liked the scarf but it was both acrylic and expensive so I decided to embrace all things recession and take apart a scarf I’d made (but didn’t really like) and fashion it into a bit of a copy. I imagine I looked very suspect as I keep going in to the shop to look at the same scarf and counting the stitches…….
Should you want to make one yourself the pattern is below.
3 balls Rowan Little Big Wool
The scarf is made up of 3 knitted strips platted together and it’s really simple!
Cast on 7 stiches (whichever cast on method you prefer- it doesn’t matter)
R1: [K1,P1]x3, K1
R2: [P1, K1]x3P1
Repeat these 2 rows until the knitted strip is as long as you would like your scarf to be. I made mine around 104 inches.
Place the stitches on a holder or scrap yarn
Strip 2 and strip 3
Repeat process for Strip 1.
Using a 4 needle bind off to cast off the live stitches at the bottom of all 3 of your strips of knitting. Plait your strips together as tightly or as loosely as you’d like.
Sew together the 3 ends.
Admire your new scarf!
