Instructions for Knitting a Liesl Scarf
These instructions are for knitting a lovely fashion scarf with a pronounced chunky rib.
The scarf is knitted with a Brioche stitch which, even for a beginner, is very easy to learn.
Scarf Width: 7ins (18cm) approx.
Scarf Length: 60ins (150cm) approx.
No. Balls: 1 x 200g Rico Liesl
Cast on 14 stitches (Note: if a wider/narrower scarf is desired, ensure that you increase/decrease cast on stitches by an even number)
Row 1: *Yarn over needle, slip 1 purlways, knit 1. Repeat from * to end (21 stitches).
Row 2: *Yarn over needle, slip 1 purlways, knit 2 together. Repeat from * across.
Repeat only row 2 for pattern.
Continue until desired scarf length is reached, leaving appox. 72ins (200cm) of yarn for final 2 rows
When ending, work the row by eliminating the yarn overs and simply purling 1 and knitting 2 together across. After that row you can cast off in a regular knit 1, purl 1 ribbing pattern. Make sure you cast off loosely, as this fabric is very stretchy.
