Simple Scarf

My photography will never do this scarf justice.  It is simply beautiful.  And it is so soft.

Simple Scarf

Malabrigo merino, worsted weight wool in Nostalgia (623)

The yarn used to make this scarf has been sitting in my stash for about a year now.  It has not been there for lack of interest, conversely I just had not been able to decide which project would be worthy of such an interesting yarn.   Last week when I went rummaging through my stash looking for a new project, I decided it was time to get this beauty out of the box.  I rolled it into a ball by hand, admiring the color variegation, and examining the spin consistency.  It was by far one of the best quality wools I had every had my fingers in.  The color and texture of the yarn was so interesting, that I felt anything more than just a simple pattern would be too distracting;  therefore, I decided on just a simple, single rib scarf.


1 skein Malabrigo worsted merino wool (210 yards/3.5 oz)  in Nostalgia (623)

1 set US size 10 needles

1 tapestry needle for weaving in ends


4-5 stitches/inch


Cast on 28 stitches using an alternating knit and purl cast-on.

Row 1: *k1, p1; repeat from * to end of row.

Row 2: *k1, p1; repeat from * to end of row.

Continue working in the single rib pattern until all but 24 inches of yarn remain.

Bind off in a k1, p1 pattern.

Weave in both ends.
