Skills required
Cast on, cast off, knit, purl stitches.

10 mm (US 15) 60 cm long but no more than 100cm circular knitting needles
Blunt tapestry needle for weaving in ends, spare yarn for marker.

o Cast on 95 stitches using size 10 mm (US 15) circular needles.

o Place maker, be sure to start with all stitches in line inside the ‘ring’ and not twisted –
see picture below.

o Knitting will be ‘joined in the round’ in ‘moss stitch’ (it is important to have the odd
number of stitches to make the moss stitch).

o Row 1: Knit 1, *purl 1, knit 1. Repeat from * to marker. Repeat this round 23 times.

o Cast off. Weave in all loose ends with blunt tapestry needle.

o TIP. Join new balls at or near the marker, this will be the centre back of the scarf and
will help keep all woven ends to this area.
