Hazeltine (Aran Scarf #1)

Scarf

Cast on 34 stitches with yarn of your choice (gauge doesn’t matter). The scarf shown was knit on size 8 bamboo needles with 1 skein of red heart super saver in dark orchid.

Work 3 rows of garter stitch.

next row: k3, place marker, work row one of elongated right slanted cable, place marker, p2, place marker, work row one of central panel, place marker, p2, place marker, work first row of elongated left slanted cable, place marker, k3.

continue working in pattern until scarf is desired length. Work 3 rows of garter stitch and bind off.

*I believe the book was published in 1986 by the editors of Mon Tricot. All I can determine online is that it’s out of print. The pattern is found on page 77. I don’t claim ownership of this particular stitch.

  1. Hi there, I’m so glad I found you on Lovely Crafty Home. I just learned to knit about two years ago, but haven’t done any knitting lately. The cooler weather and seeing your pretty scarf in the link party are getting me in the mood to pick up my needles again. Thanks for the great pattern!
