••• STOCKHOLM SCARF \ Finished Object \ “Instructions for Knitting in the Round”

Ah, knitting, how I love thee.

Ah, huge, scrunchy scarf, how I wish I could live all day in thee.

Oh, knitting pattern that looks complicated and time-consuming, but is easily memorizable and quick… how I hold thee in my heart with glee and giddyness!

Can I say enough good things about this scarf? Oh, nay, dear reader! I cannot!!

It has so seduced me, that I’m talking like the Jane Austen movies I’ve watched a hundred times! Ahhh.

PATTERN: Stockholm Scarf by knitted bliss.

Instructions are for knitting this flat and then joining into the round. I chose to work it in the round… it took me a wee bit of brain power to figure out how, so rather than you waste your time and effort, here is what I did!

CO 252 (instead of 256 like the pattern says)

Rnd 1: K1, P1, K2, P3

Rnd 2: as written

Rnd 3: K1, P1, K3, P2

Rnd 4: as written

YARN: This was a tester aran weight yarn I no longer carry, but any of my worsted weight yarns would work wonderfully. 3 skeins would work. They sell out FAST, and I get lots of emails from sad peeps who waited and missed out forever on a shade they simply HAD to have…Don’t delay if your heart is set on a color! It might not be there tomorrow.)

NEEDLES: US 10 / 6.0 mm

FINISHING: Normally I block all my items (usually by soaking in luke warm water and pinning out to dry) but I chose not to do anything for this item. I like it scrunchy and fat and blocking makes things drapier. Is that a word? More drapey. Drape more. Drapish.

TIP! Use Jeny’s Suprisingly Stretchy Bind Off for a HUGE, stretchy edge! I LOVE this bind off and use it on nearly everything. Click here for my tutorial on how to do it. It’s easy once you get the hang of it.

 This can be worn SOOO many different ways, including around the shoulders, like this:

I’ve been wearing it just scrunched up twice around my neck.

Well, I’ve blabbed on and on…

Let’s sum it up. I love this scarf. I loved making it so much. Took 2 weeks. Soothing. I’ll wear the tail off of it.

Now for some feel-good-ness. Totally off topic, but I can’t stop watching this amazing YouTube video. Makes me sobby every time. I hope it brightens your day and makes your heart swell up with all kinds of good emotions!!

 

 

And as always, your comments mean so much to me, so please comment below and let me know what you think!

And remember to ENJOY YOUR day!

    You gave us all of the pattern except row 2 and 4? LOL. Maybe that was intentional…

      If you go to the original pattern, you will be working all 4 rows as stated in the pattern if you are working 2 FLAT panels (as the pattern states.)

      If you are working the pattern IN THE ROUND (like Chandi did), then rows 1 and 3 are as she has written above and rows 2 and 4 are worked as the original pattern states. [I hope that helped! :)]

    Very nice scarf/cowl thingie! Looks great on you and I like how it is super wide so it can do some shawl functions. Do you really live in Alaska? I thought you were kidding! Shipping must be murder for you! I used to live in Hawaii and it was so expensive to send anything back to the Mainland. It was always a struggle to make sure you spent more on the gift than the shipping costs to send it to someone. If you really live in Alaska and haven’t had snow before Halloween then that is really something because they didn’t even have that luck in Minnesota this year. It is such an inspiration to see you finish all these projects. It really inspires me to finish! Thanks so much!

    We in Canada have our own North Pole – at least a postal address! Hundreds of people respond to Santa letters every year:
    Santa
    North Pole Canada
    H0H 0H0
    A letter will get there even if the the postal code is spelled HOHOHO

    Thank you for posting this cowl pattern using circular needles. was wondering what needle size did you use for this cowl? I used needle size 10 as stated in the original pattern and my cowl seems to be coming out more loosely knit than the pictures make it appear.

    I see size 10 needles but what length of needle? Will 24 inch be big enough?
    Thanks

    Hello, I believe I need some help for this beautiful scarf. I’ve started knitting from the French pattern. They say to start with 128 stitches on a round needle. As I knit I realize that it doesn’t seem as large as the one I see on the photos. Is it possible that it was supposed to be knit as a flat and not a round project? Do I knit two round sections and sew them together? Does it stretch out that much. In your version you cast on 252 stitches, I think I at have to start over ?
    Happy new year to you and keep up your love for knitting
    Jasmine

      Jasmine, I think the pattern is written to be made flat. I had to adjust it to knit it in the round. 🙂
