Chevron Scarf.

I’ve received a couple of questions about the Chevron Scarf I made for my mother, so here are the instructions for it. Please feel free to ask me if you don’t understand the pattern or if you find any mistakes. I’m new with writing patterns…

Gauge is not important with this scarf.

·         Garnstudio DROPS Alpaca
125 grams 2.5 skeins = 455.0 yards (416.1m)
(Colorway 302)
·         Garnstudio DROPS Alpaca Silk
72 grams 2.9 skeins = 443.7 yards (405.7m)
(Colorway 5)

You could use any two fingering weight yarn to replace the aforementioned or maybe knit with just one strand of aran weight yarn…

·         size 8 or 5.0 mm circ needles of preferred length


Using both yarns CO 47 sts with size 8 / 5.0 mm needles. I used long tail method casting on. Start the 1x1 ribbing (see below)

1x1 ribbing

RS: S 1 as if to knit, *p 1, k 1*, repeat *-* until the end of the row
WS: S 1 as if to purl, *k 1, p 1*, repeat *-* until the end of the row

Continue these two rows until the ribbing measures 6 cm ending with a WS row.

RS: Continue the 1x1 ribbing as established with the first 5 sts of the row. Work first round of the chart 3 times (36 sts) and then once more the first st of the chart (37 sts altogether). With the 5 sts remaining *k1, p1* twice, k1.
WS: Continue the 1x1 ribbing as established with the first 5 sts of the row. Work second round of the chart 3 times (36 sts) and then once more the first st of the chart (37 sts altogether). With the 5 sts remaining *p1, k1* twice, p1.

Continue in this way working through the chart as many times as you want. I did 40 repeats, and ended up with a 2 m long scarf, but you can make yours as long as you want.

Finish the scarf with 1x1 ribbing as instructed above. Loosely BO the sts. Wet-blocking is recommended, but if you are lazy you could also iron the scarf between two wet towels.

S 1 = Slip 1
K = knit on RS, purl on WS
P = purl on RS, knit on WS

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting! Salut Chéri!

The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle.

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
