Week Ten: The Melissa Scarf

Week Ten: The Melissa Scarf

The Melissa Scarf
designed exclusively for Inish Knits
by Michigan knitwear designer Marla Mutch

Materials: Louisa Harding Merletto, 2 skeins.
Gauge: fairly unnecessary—it’s a scarf!
Size: approximately 11" wide, 72" long.

Cast on 3 sts. Knit across.

Pattern Row: Using the "e" cast on, cast on 5 stitches, bind off 3, and knit across remaining stitches. (You are creating a bobble-like edge, plus increasing by 2 stitches every row.) Repeat the pattern row every row, making a triangle, until pieces measures 11" from cast on row.

Bind Off Row: *Cast on 3 sts, bind off 6 sts, place last stitch on right hand needle back onto the left needle; repeat from * across row, until 1-3 sts remain. Repeat cast on, and bind off remaining sts. Weave in ends. Enjoy!
