Whiteowlcrochetco. Walnut Scarf

Walnut is a small but mighty lacy scarf, great for keeping your neck warm or tying your hair back!

Working from right to left, this scarf is first cast on provisionally for a seamless i-cord edge and increased on one side to the total stitch count, then decreased on the same side to return to the beginning stitch count. At this point you’ll graft the i-cord edges together for another seamless join.

This pattern uses only 8 sts: 

K, P, YO, M1R, SKP, K2Tog, K3Tog, and CDD.

Techniques used include:

  • Knitting flat
  • I-cord Tab / Provisional Cast-on
  • I-cord Edges
  • Lace
  • Kitchener Stitch (4 stitches total)

Scarf length easily modified by adding additional repeats.
