Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Holiday 2009: “Theresa Schabes knits an (Almost) Double-Knit Scarf by working every third row in ribbing rather than double knitting, creating a solid-on-one-side, striped-on-the-other fabric. An unusual blend of cotton, viscose, and angora knits into a silky-soft fabric with a gentle halo.”

Finished Size: 4½“ wide and 60” long.

Yarn: Tahki Truffles (32% cotton, 30% viscose, 20% angora, 18% nylon; 102 yd 932 m/50 g): #005 eucalipto (MC), 3 balls; #002 capullo pink, 1 ball.

Needles: Size 7 (4.5 mm): double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Tapestry needle; stitch holder.

Gauge: 29 sts and 20 rows = 4” in patt st.


  • Sl all sts pwise. Sts are slipped with yarn in back (wyb) unless otherwise stated.
  • Make sure to check both side of your work after you complete each row. It is a common mistake to inadvertently carry the yarn in front of the stitches on the opposite side of the fabric. If this happens, just slip off the needle and pull it forward under the errant carry.
