Snow

Snow is a thick, tapered scarf made with super bulky yarn and 10mm needles. I used just under 6 skeins of Misti Alpaca Super Chunky 3 Ply. This design includes short-row knitting. The top border is done in garter stitch and the bottom border is ribbed. Enjoy!

Materials
350 meters super bulky wool
8mm needles (best to use 32″ or longer circulars)
10mm needles (best to use 32″ or longer circulars)

Gauge
8 stitches and 12 rows in stockinette stitch = 4″

Measurements
before blocking: approximately 60″ across x 15″ at the centre
after blocking: approximately 65″ across x 16″ at the centre

Abbreviations
K = knit
P = purl
sts= stitches
WT = wrap and turn
M1K = with right needle, lift the horizontal strand before the next stitch and knit into the loop
M1P = with right needle, lift the horizontal strand before the next stitch and purl into the loop

Notes
To wrap and turn on the knit side: work to point where it is indicated to WT, bring yarn to front of work, slip the next stitch from the left needle, bring yarn to back, slip the stitch back onto the left needle, turn.

To wrap and turn on the purl side: work to point where it is indicated to WT, bring yarn to back of work, slip the next stitch from the left needle, bring yarn to front, slip the stitch back onto the left needles, turn.

To knit a wrap: lift the wrap onto the left needle, knitl the next stitch and wrap together.

To purl a wrap: lift the wrap onto the left needle, purl the next stitch and wrap together.

    Beautiful scarf! I’ve just learned how to knit basic stitches, but my expertise is really crocheting. I have Tunisian crochet hooks coming in the mail soon, and I’ve always wondered if knitting patterns can be converted into Tunisian crochet patterns (it looks a lot like knitting). A scarf seems like a good way to try this experiment–maybe I will work on it for the fall.

    Do you have any pictures of the scarf spread out flat by the way?

    Thanks for the free patterns. :)

    One more thing:

    Where do you find the pins btw? I’ve seen pins such as these on various designs, but I don’t know where to find them, nor have I experimented with them.

    Hello again!
    I purchased this wooden pin from Romni Wools in Toronto. Fantastic yarn store!
