just in time...august's FREE pattern!

inspired by a pretty stitch discovered in rowan magazine #42...




augustus...a scarf

gauge is not important...just keep it on the loose side

using a lovely bulky-weight yarn--or a strand of worsted wool with a strand of mohair held together-- cast 53 (multiples of 4 plus 1) stitches on a size 11/ 8mm (or whatever works for your yarn) needle...repeat the following rows until you have your desired length...

row 1:  slip 1, knit 3, (slip 1 with yarn in back, knit 3)12 times, knit 1.
row 2:  slip 1, knit 3, (slip 1 with yarn in front, knit 3)12 times, knit 1.
row 3:  slip 1, knit 1, (slip 1 with yarn in back, knit 3)12 times, slip 1 with yarn in back, knit 2.
row 4:  slip 1, knit 1, (slip 1 with yarn in front, purl 3) 12 times, slip 1 with yarn in front, knit 2.

so...all slipped stitches are slipped purlwise (including the first stitch of each row)...keep the first two stitches in garter...and, yes, you are purling on that fourth row...

finish by casting off as you wish...you may want to add fringe at each end...or some other embellishment, perhaps?  this would make a lovely throw or baby blanket, too...endless possiblities, no?

note bene...this "pattern" has not been test-knit...
please let me know if you have any difficulties

happy knitting!

  1. I'm assuming you want the interior slip sts to have the yarn carried in the "back" of them when you knit them on the 3rd time across. Because of that, you need to tell us to return the yarn to the back after we slip that stitch so that there won't be a yo after slipping since we are knitting every row. I'm doing it on a US11 needle. I'll post a pic when I'm done. THANKX! Catherine
