Ribbed Ribbon-Yarn Scarf
Ladder-Ribbon and Trellis yarns, especially the metallic ones, are beautiful & elegant to work with.
This is a simple, long ribbed scarf with fringe at the ends, but because of the beauty of the multi-tonal ribbon-yarn it really works. This scarf is a wardrobe staple as it really adds a bit of a punch to almost any outfit from a dressy outfit to jeans & a tee-shirt. A fave!
Finished size: 2 meters + 6″ fringe at each end
Needle: US 8 – 5.0 mm
Yarn: I used Bernat Matrix (now discontinued)
2 skeins = 280.0 yards (256.0m)
Good substitution would be Eros, Athena or another ladder ribbon or trellis yarn especially one of the metallic ones.
Gauge: varies depending on yarn used. Matrix is a sport weight but worsted weight would work just as well.
Cast on 16 stitches on 5mm needles
Knit in K2 x P2 ribbing.
Make as long as you like.
Mine is 2 meters before fringe.
6 inches of fringe added to each end –
Cut 32 -12 inch lengths of yarn
Take 2 -12 inch lengths of yarn, fold in half and with a crochet hook pull through at one edge of the end of the scarf. Then with the hook pull the tails of the strands through the loop. Give it a little tug to secure the fringe. Continue, spacing evenly across each end so that you have 8 fringes across each end of the scarf.
