Candy Corners

Add a sparkle of color to your spring outfit with this light and playful scarf. It is easy to knit because it consists of garter stitch short rows alternated with a lace pattern. As with nearly all short row patterns, it's great to show off your variegated yarn.


This pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry and on loveknitting. It contains written instructions and some illustrations explaining the short rows.





Skills Needed
Besides the plain knit stitch (garter stitch) you need the following skills to knit this scarf:
  • Short rows with wrap and turn (w+t)
  • Decrease with slip-slip-knit (ssk), alternatively you can use a k2tog
  • Increase with yarn-over (yo)


Materials
  • 300 grams of DK weight yarn - the yarn I used for the scarf in the pictures is Austermann Step 6 Irish Rainbow Colors (link to the yarn's Ravelry page)
  • 4mm needles (straight or circulars)
  • 1 stitch marker
  • tapestry needle to weave in ends


Gauge and Size
Unblocked my gauge was as follows: 10 sts and 21 rows gave 5 cm. Unblocked the scarf measured 140 cm x 33 cm, blocked it grew to 170 cm x 36 cm
