  • BO: Bind Off 
  • YO: Yarn Over 
  • K2tog: Knit two stitches together 
Instructions:

CO 20 sts
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: K2, *yo, K2tog; rpt from * to last 2 sts; K2

  2. This is the project I'm working on now as a Christmas gift. Can't wait to finish it and give it to the person intended. Using size 7US needles as that is all I have not in use at the moment but I'm sure it will still look just as wonderful. Love this site and your posts

    1. What a lovely idea! I think it would be beautiful! Just to be sure, I would do a test swatch to see what it would look like...you might have to play around with the needle size too.

      Would be fantastic for chilly early spring days! :-)

    3. What a wonderful thing thing you are doing for the school kids! The great thing too about the scarf is that you can knit it to any length you want, making it suitable for very young kids all the way up to a very tall adult...very customizeable! :-)

  6. I don't knit. Is there a crochet version of the Tweedy Eyelet Scarf?

  7. Hi Jennifer, I have just found your blog and have bookmarked a few of your patterns/projects to create, but only after I finish crocheting my blanket.

    I was wondering if you knew what wool you used for this project, it really is lovely.

    P.S I love your name, I learned to knit and crochet from my Mum and her name is Jennifer too.

  9. Hi Jennifer, I am making this with a Noro yarn (for myself). I had one skein left over from a project, so we shall see how far it goes!

  10. Jennifer,
    I found a skein of unlabeled novelty yarn--gorgeous but very thin. With size 7 needles, I followed this pattern and have completed 10 rows, but unlike your scarf, my stitches slant to the left. It's very pretty, but to add interest, I wondered what would happen if I did the next 10 rows with YO, P2tog. Would the stitches slant the other direction? I'm afraid to try because the novelty yarn is very hard to unravel if I mess up, and I'm not good at picking up knitting stitches. So I thought I'd seek your advice before attempting it. Thank you!

    1. Hi Wyominggal! Than does sound very pretty! It does seem as if it would behave in the opposite way, but just to make sure I would make a swatch before you move forward just to be sure. That way you won't have to take anything apart (yikes!) or have to commit to if it didn't look the way you want it to. Hope that helps!

  11. This looks lovely! I'll try this when I have my ordered hats and scarfs knitted that my friends asked me to knit for them! It will be after Christmas but I wonder if it would be difficult to knit a hat to match your scarf. This of course will be for me or my 8 yr old little girl!

  12. Hi! I have tried starting this scarf two times, and each time I end up with an extra stitch after Row 5. Any thoughts about what I might be doing wrong?
    Thank you!!
