Special Stitches

I used the German method of creating short rows in the scarf. Use whichever method you prefer. If you are working the “wrap and turn”, work this at the turning point and ignore the “SR” instruction at the start of the following row, then work the wrapped stitches together with their wraps as you come to them. As you are working in garter st, the wraps don’t need to be hidden as they will blend in.

German Short Rows (SR)

WS is facing. Bring yarn to the front, sl st p-wise and bring yarn up, over and back to pull on the slipped st until it slides around to show two legs. Keeping the yarn at the back in order to k next st while keeping the tension. When working the stitch, the next time you meet it, work the “doubled stitch” as if it were one, that is, work the two legs together.

Garter st

Knit every stitch on every row.

Pattern Notes

The scarf is worked side to side along the long edge. The extra-long needles are needed to accommodate the scarf’s length.
