Pretty scarf for me!

I have finally got all the Christmas/holiday decorations put away and now have time to spend knitting some projects I came across prior to the holiday season.

I found a lovely scarf pattern on the net that some very kind knitter was giving it out as a Christmas present to any or all who wanted to give it a try.  I decided to make mine on my LK 150 (the pattern was done on a bulky) as I like less bulk for my scarves.  There is some hand manipulation but I was very surprised as to how quickly this little project worked up.  You are only working on 38 stitches
so there are 8 three prong transfers every other row.

What I really like about this little scarf is the fact it comes off the machine without any rolling of the side edges.  I would still give it a light steam but other than that it is just fine the way it is.

Also the knit and purl sides are both quite attractive so that is another bonus for this project.

Here is the scarf as it came off the machine
This is a lovely ladies scarf for yourself or as a gift.  The beauty of the non rolling edges is the fact there are transfers made creating a hole on the 3rd stitch on each end.  Brilliant!  I will keep that in mind for future projects like afghans.

Below is the pattern with a breakdown of the transfer row:

Cast on 38 stitches  19 sts left of 0 - 19 sts right of 0
Knit 2 rows ending with carriage on the right.

Using your 3 prong transfer tool

Working from the right side  transfer sts 15, 16, 17 over one space to the left
Then transfer 11, 12 and 13 over one space to the right
There are 3 stitches on needle 14 no stitches on 11 or 17

Transfer 6, 7, 8 over one needle to the left
Transfer 2, 3, 4 over one needle to the right
3 stitches on needle 5 and no stitches on 2 and 8 (right of 0)

Transfer 2, 3, 4 over one needle to the left
Transfer 6, 7, 8 over one needle to the right
There are 3 stitches on needle 5 and no sts on needles 2 and 8 (left of 0)

Transfer lol, 12, 13 over one space to the left
Transfer 15, 16,17 one space to the right
There are 3 stitches on needle 14 and no stitches on needles 11 and 17.

Your set up will be as follows

I I 0 I I 3 I I 0 I I 0 I I 3 I I 0 I I 0 I I 3 I I 0 I I 0 I I 3 I I 0 I I

Push all your needles out to hold
Knit two rows.

Repeat the 4 sets of transfers every other row until you reach the length you want then knit two final rows then one loose row and crochet cast off.


  1. Your pretty scarf is indeed very pretty - and I like the non-rolling feature. Can you tell me the name of the pattern so I can look it up on ravelry?

  2. It's lovely!
    I'm having trouble with Blogger and picture are you doing your pictures?

  3. I, too, am interested in the pattern. It is very pretty!

  4. The pattern was given to us as a Christmas gift on the from Adrienne I believe. I hope I have this right. She was most generous and I for one can't thank her enough for her pattern which I just loved making.
    Adrienne has a blog and the scarf pattern is in there - go to:

    Adrienne's blog is full of wonderful ideas and projects. Take some time to look around it is worth it!

  5. Thank you so much Marg. I appreciate it and look forward to seeing what I can learn from Adrinne.

  6. Thanks again Marge -- another good idea for an afghan or throw!


  7. This is just the pattern I have been looking for. Could you tell me what weight of yarn you used, and how much yarn (approx) it took to do? Thanks in advance!

  8. I used Patons Beehive Baby Sport(#3) weight yarn for this project. It really didn't use a lot of yarn as I was just using up some left overs from my stash. I would think one ball with 85 g/3 oz would do the job. I think you could use whatever you want adding or decreasing the pattern across the row to make it wider or narrower.
