**scarf**(or a woman's too).

Here is the diagram:

**Key**
l = Knit

--- = Purl

Cast on a multiple of 16 stitches. Knit according to the diagram. Start at the bottom right corner. When knitting the wrong side of the scarf just follow the pattern of the previous row. Repeat every 15 rows. It's just that simple!

I don't really understand. If the bolded part is the pattern, won't we have to cast on a multiple of 8x+8?

ReplyDeleteWell, a multiple of 16 is a multiple of 8x+8.

ReplyDeleteSo, you knit each row 2x? I'm going to try this as a square/washcloth today. I'll post a pic/update of how it goes!

No, 8x+8 is not 16x at all. 88 is not dividable by 16 for example. And then according to the chart I think it's 8x because what's in the bolded square and the rest are the same.

ReplyDeleteomg! Stitches are in multiples of 16, so if you want to make the scarf twice as wide then it is 32 sts and so on you add 16 you don't multiply.

Deletedeary, maths is a mystery to some, ey? 8x+8 is NOT 16x.

Delete8x is the number of stitches of the pattern +8 is the number of border stitches.

If you want 4 repeats of the pattern it is (4*8)+8=40 and not 16*4 which is 64.

or to look at it from the other side: if you have 88 stitches thats 10 repeats (8x = 80) + 8 border stitches. 88 divided by 16 is 5.5. So 5 and a half repeats or what???

sorry,,

ReplyDeletei found this pattern is reli perfect..

but i just dont get it..

is that 8X+8 or 16 then?

and i dont understand what do u mean by the number besides..1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15?

what about the even numbers??

i reli do love this pattern,,

hope you reli can help me with the problem.thanks!

Hi! I enjoyed so much this pattern and had a lot of problems understanding it. But still I didn´t give up until I could see the final result on my yarn :)

ReplyDeleteSo, here´s the explained pattern, for those who had come here and for those who are still to come (hope you all read my comment)

Just start the 1º row from right to left following the stiches.

Repeat the 1º row from left to right, changing the stiches. Where says K, becames P, and where says P, becames K.

and do trhe same for all others. It´s going to stay something like this:

k ( I ) knit

p ( - ) purl

1- *k p k 5p*

2- *5k p k p*

3- *k p 5k p*

4- *k 5p k p*...

and keep going.

Remember:

Do the fisrt row from right to left

then do the first row again, from left to right, changint the sitches, where says K, becomes P, and where says P, becames K.

Good luck!!!

So it's cast on multiples of eight and follow the 4 row repeat that you wrote down?

DeleteThanks for clearing up the pattern. It looked like multiples of 8. But the return row was confusing. Now that I know that it is the opposite, now it is very easy to understand. Thanks again.

DeleteThank you, Magda!

DeleteStill thanking you, Magda, two years later! <3

Thank you for writing this out correctly! I'm almost finished with my scarf and it looks exactly like the photo (same color, too). Love this pattern!

DeleteStevie Hurst-THANK YOU!

DeleteThank you, Stevie!

DeleteSeriously, everybody deep breath, the bold is the repeat and with this kind of pattern naturally it shines when you do multiples of that..the back side you knit what you see that's where English always sucks because of what you call the knit and purl stitch rather then using a more apt name, but that's another story. And the best suggestion ever from an above post: do a sample whenever a stich I have never done or not done for 50 or so years I take a piece of scrap yarn and go forth work out my kinks in my brain and voila once I get out of my own way I can see how it all falls into place

ReplyDeleteThank you for sharing

ReplyDeleteThank you for the pattern.

ReplyDeleteAnd thanks to Magda for further explanation!

LOVE THIS! I may use it to make a pair of socks!

ReplyDeleteThank you for sharing!! I Think I finelly found the pattern for my big shawl to be!!

ReplyDeleteI followed the diagram exactly, but it looked NOTHING like the photo. :(

ReplyDeleteAgree, I tried and the pattern looked totally different from the picture :(

DeleteSame here. Perhaps a rewrite of the pattern could be submitted? :/

DeleteI found this pattern on a blog, thought it might help. Seems similar and easy ad a little understandable lol. http://crafts.creativebug.com/knit-chevron-pattern-2067.html

DeleteThx soo much... its not clear how many stiches per box

DeleteThanks very much, Mattia!

DeleteI have pulled this apart 3 times now because I get it to row 16 and then it goes all wonky. Anyone who can help?

DeleteMerci beaucoup, compliquer à comprendre quand on lis tous les commentaires :)

DeleteIt is easier to say that the numbers 1, 3, 5 etc are the numbers of the rows on the right side or front of the work and you repeat the groups of 8 stitches for whatever width of fabric you are making and then, turn the work i.e. on the Wrong side or back of the work you simply knit all the knit stitches and purl the purls as you see them.

ReplyDeleteHi---What weight yarn do you use? What size needles? Thanks!

ReplyDelete

ReplyDeleteJust to make this a lot more complicated, is it possible to do it in a round? For a cowl?

ReplyDeleteJust to make this a lot more complicated, is it possible to do it in a round? For a cowl?

I believe that you would make row 1 &2 the same, then row 3&4 the same, and so on.

DeleteWhat needle size and yarn has been used for this pattern? Is there any particular sizes that are recommended to use or avoid? Thanks!

ReplyDeleteAfter row 15 - do you go back to row 1 or do you do the opposite of row 15 and then do row 1? In other words, is the pattern 15 rows or really 16 rows?

ReplyDeleteHusband loved the scarf, now he wants a matching hat....oh boy!

DeleteIs there a reason the owner of this blog and the one who posted this pattern (and knows how to do it)- has seen the madness going on for 4 YEARS now, in the comments- and not said a word?! End the crazy confusion and guessing- and tell all of us, who love your pattern, but are sorely confused- how to exactly READ and execute your pattern!! Have you abandoned your blog? It's literally been 4 years of people commenting that they don't know what the heck to do and others thinking they know how (and they might be correct, but who the heck knows)! Oy Vey is all I gotta say!

ReplyDeleteCheck November 14th, 2014 comment by Mattia and accompanying diagram.

ReplyDeleteI think that this is what it is all about! Will redo my trial of last night which did not look like anything close to the pattern. But I do

believe this is the one to try! Thanks Mattia

Yes, I noticed his comment- but I'd like to know what the author of the pattern meant- because what she says to do seems different then what he's saying. Not that he very well may be right- I actually haven't tried the patterns yet. When she says "When knitting the wrong side of the scarf just follow the pattern of the previous row"- why would you reverse the row (Knits for purls etc)? It's a beautiful pattern nonetheless ;)

DeleteWhat yarn u use and size needlles

ReplyDeleteThank you very much for posting this. I greatly appreciate it!

ReplyDeleteHi, is it possible to see a video? That would really help since I cannot read actual stitches

ReplyDeleteThis link may help to explain this stitch pattern a bit better.

ReplyDeleteCan anyone tell me what size needle and how much wool and what type, dk or aran????

ReplyDeleteEach wool will have it's own instructions, so if you want to ensure whatever you make will last, then focus on the washing instructions and follow these to the letter moving forward. garn rea
