Minnie is a narrow scarf designed to use aran weight wool and 6mm needles. Perfect for days when you just need a light neck warmer! I used just under two skeins of Tanis Green Label Aran Weight in Garnet. Any aran weight yarn will do. Finished measurements are approximate. You could end up with a slightly larger or smaller scarf depending on your gauge and choice of yarn. Enjoy!
400 meters aran weight yarn
(I used 2 skeins Tanis Green Label Aran Weight)
18 stitches and 30 rows
approximately 11″ x 65″ unblocked
approximately 13″ x 75″ blocked
CO = cast on
K = knit
St = stitch
S1 = slip one stitch
YO = yarn over needle
K2Tog = knit two stitches together
K5 times into next stitch = K into front, back, front, back, front of next stitch
Pass first 4 stitches over 5th = insert left needle into 4th stitch on right needle, lift over 5th st,
repeat with 3rd, 2nd and 1st st
CO 5 stitches
Row 1: knit
Row 2: S1, K to last 2 sts, YO, K1, K5 times into next st
Row 3: K5, pass first 4 sts over 5th st, K to end
Row 4: S1, K to end
Row 5: K to end
Row 6: S1, K to end
Row 7: K to end
Repeat Rows 2 to 7 another 38 times. You have finished one-half of the scarf.
Next, work Rows 8 to 13:
Row 8: S1, K to last 3 sts, YO, K2Tog, K5 into next st
Row 9: K5, pass first 4 sts over 5th st, K to end
Row 10: S1, K to last 3 sts, K2Tog, K1
Row 11: K to end
Row 12: S1, K to end
Row 13: K to end
Repeat Rows 8 to 13 until there are 5 sts left, ending with Row 13. Work Rows 8 and Row 9 once more, cast off. Weave in yarn ends.
Blocking is suggested. I find that blocking garter stitch items opens up the stitches.
