Sweet Cinnamon Wrap

Wrap yourself up to keep cozy as we head into fall and winter. This wrap is a fantastic project for newer knitters, and a great introduction to charts and patterns since the pattern always builds on the rows beneath it in a predictable way. Featuring the Cascade Yarns Aereo in Provence (just like the Harvest Poncho pattern also in this issue), this is one of our favorites for the new season.

Pattern Notes

The chart only shows the odd numbered rows.

Every stitch of every even sided row is knit.

If you can’t remember which side of the work you’re looking at, pick it up as if you’re ready to knit. If the diagonal lines of eyelets are going in the same direction as the chart (up and to the right), your next row is an odd number.  If they are going the opposite direction as the chart (up and to the left), your next row is an even number.

The written pattern and the chart say exactly the same thing in two different ways (one with abbreviations, the other graphically). Pick whichever works best for you.

Both the chart and written instructions are for a 20-row repeat! Do not forget to knit Row 20 before moving on to doing Row 1 again.

Pattern

CO 52 sts.

Work patt either from the chart or written instructions, repeating the 20 rows until Scarf meas 72” long.

BO all sts.

Finishing

Weave in ends.

      Hi Violet!
      If you look at the beginning of the written instructions (I’ve copied them below for you) it says you knit row 2 and all even rows. So that’s what’s going on with row 18. The only reason the designer listed row 20 explicitly is that newer knitters don’t know that you need an even number of rows, don’t bother to do a final even row before restarting the pattern, and then end up accidentally switching which is the right side which messes up their knitting. This designer always lists the final row of a repeat to make sure newer knitters don’t make that mistake! Hope that helps!
      The written instructions for the pattern are below:
      Row 1 (RS): K6, (k1, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k5) 4 times, k1, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k1.
      Row 2 and all even rows: Knit.
      Row 3: K6, (ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k6) 4 times, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k2.
      Row 5: K5, ssk, (yo, k2tog, yo, k6, ssk) 4 times, yo, k2tog, yo, k3.
      Row 7: K4, ssk, yo, (k2tog, yo, k6, ssk, yo) 4 times, k2tog, yo, k4.
      Row 9: K3, ssk, yo, k2tog, (yo, k6, ssk, yo, k2tog) 4 times, yo, k5.
      Row 11: K2, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, (k6, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo) 4 times, k6.
      Row 13: K1, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, (k5, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k1) 4 times, k6.

      Row 17: K1, k2tog, yo, k3, (k3, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k3) 4 times, k3, ssk, yo, k1.

      Hi Edith! You will need to CO 52 sts. You might have missed it about since it is below the Special Stitches and the Pattern Notes sections which come before the actual Pattern section. Happy knitting! – Nicola, Editor

  • Is the complete pattern out there somewhere? How many times are the 20 rows repeated?

      Hi Jody! Be sure to read the pattern notes, but I can also reach out to the designer if you have additional questions. The 20 rows are repeated until the scarf measures 72″ long. Hope that helps! – Nicola, Editor
