Nautilina Scarf

This crescent shaped scarf is knitted all in garter stitch from side to side. Its shaped by short rows and only grows very slowly in width, all increases are made in the middle of the piece.

When finished and laid out straight, the scarf will measure about 160cm on the shorter (C1-only-)side.

Compared to the first idea (as shown here) quite a few changes to the design have been made.

Nautilina is the spanish word for Nautilus (see on Wikipedia) – and I think the scarf’s pattern looks a bit similar.

Materials:
  • a total of 115 to 120 grams of fingering weight yarn in two colours – I used 80 grams of variegated yarn as main colour (C1)  and 25 grams of my contrast  colour (C2 – black in the pictures).
  • 3.5 mm knitting needles
  • two stitch markers, one of them removable
  • tapestry needle (to weave in ends)

Techniques:

Instructions:

Throughout the pattern, garter stitch ridges with increases or decreases are highlighted in boldface.

BO and weave in ends.


Tips:
  • I found it useful to place a stitch marker (safety pin) after finishing row 16, then counting from there, I’d increase in C1 (main colour) after the second C2 (contrast colour) stripe and increase in contrast colour in the fourth stripe.
  • Stay consistent as to how to cross your yarns when changing colours; I always put the new (to be used) yarn UNDER and behind the old yarn (see photo).
