Modular Scarf

Modular Scarf (Photo-Tutorial)

Modular ScarfHello Everyone,

I have some beautiful balls of pure wool self-stripping sock yarn in my stash,

I decided to use some to knit a modular scarf.

Here is how to do.

You will need:

  • 3.5mm (US: 4) knitting needles
  • 100 gr self-stripping sock yarn
  • 3.5mm (US: 4) crochet


Tips and tricks:
  • Slip purlwise the first stitch of a row, instead of working it. This makes things easier, when you have to pick up stitches along the edges.
  • Use a cast on which is not too tight (I use “Knit-on Cast-on” method whenever possible. Alternatively, I use the Backward loop Cast-on)

Please apologise for the poor quality of the pictures: I was travelling while knitting this, and had only a small camera at hand… this explains the various backgrounds (pics were taken in trains, armchairs, trunks…) and some unwanted esthetic issues…

 

Ready? Get set… Go !

Work Module 6 by picking up stiches along Module 4 and Left Triangle.

 

Work Module 7 picking up stitches between Modules 5 and 6,

Work a Left triangle along Module 6 and a Right Triangle along Module 5

Keep on adding modules and triangles until your run out of wool or, till you reach the desired lenght.

Once you’ve finished the knitting work: crochet a row of SC all around the scarf, with 3.5mm (US 4) hook.
