Pumpkin Ridge Scarf

This fun scarf can be worn many different ways to provide endless style options. You can wrap it around your neck once, twice, even three times or more! The slipped stitches provide a natural fold that allows for the scarf to fold in half lengthwise and the short rows give this scarf its signature curled appearance.

    I was immediately taken when I saw the photo but this is perhaps one of the most difficult patterns I’ve yet to read. I’m disappointed.

    Please explain the abbreviations. I have been knitting for a long time, and I am afraid that I do not understand what you mean when you use the abbreviation “m”

    Yup, I am mystified also…no key to the abbreviations, and no answer to questions submitted a year ago this time! Looks like a fun pattern, but I guess I will never know!

  • Adorable pattern and instructions clear to me. I’m not that experienced a knitter. Maybe an Intermediate knitter.
    I read the abbreviations as:
    m = Marker
    sm = slip marker to other needle (not in pattern)
    sl m = slip marker to other needle

    How to Knit a Wrap Stitch (go to youtube and enter “How to Knit a Wrap Stitch” for a visual.)
    Step 1: Slip the next stitch after your turning point onto your working needle.

    Step 2: Wrap your working yarn around the slipped stitch.

    Step 3: Slip the stitch back to your main needle.

    Step 4: Turn your work and continue knitting in the opposite direction.

    Once you are ready to knit over your wrapped stitches, pick up the wrap and place it onto your main needle, then knit the wrap and the wrapped stitch together.
    Just one of many youtube examples:

    Was looking forward to starting this scarf but on reading the pattern found I did not (like other comments) understand the abbreviations and I have been an accomplished knitter for over 40 years. Very disappointed.

    Having trouble understanding the abbreviations of this scarf pattern. Could you explain them please. Thank you.

  • What abbreviations are you having trouble with? It helps if you would tell us where you are having difficulty. I don’t see any abbreviations that are different than the standard.

  • Does ‘pm’ in the set up row mean ‘set marker’? and ‘m’ in subsequent rows mean ‘marker’ meaning the stitch the marker is placed at?
    I do not know what ‘wrap stitch’ means, how is this done, does anyone know please?

  • Hi-as the previous comments regarding the pattern, I would really appreciate it if you are able to elaborate on the abbreviations please? PM/SM ?? Any help would be appreciated thankyou

    I am an experienced knitter. Think PM = place marker; m= marker; Sl m = slip the marker

    Is that right?

  • otg= together
    knot to m(or any m) means MARKER
    SL = SLIP
    ST= STITCH
    PWISE= on the purl side

    Looked over the pattern, hope to try it soon. I’ve seen your abbreviations before so I shouldn’t have a problem. When I run across a new abbreviation I just google it and usually find loads of explanations! Love the look of this pattern, thank you.

    Not sure what you mean by “working tog wrapped st”. Is there a You-Tube video that explains the stitch?
