knit/lab/flatweave scarf

A complicated two color scarf combining stranded knitting, reverse stranding and corrugated ribbing in a largely successful attempt to get a narrow piece of stranded knitting to lie flat.

 

The combination of textures, stripes and motifs looks a bit like Turkish and Asian flatwoven carpets.

 

The sample was knit on 2.75mm/US2 needles with 2 half sets of ColorShift Yarn (discontinued - see help page):

MC Cobalt Blue to Seaforest Green Colorbridge 320yds/290m

CC Pale Lavender Gradation 480yds/440m (yardage used approx. 320yds/290m)

Gauge: approximately 28sts and 26 rows = 4 inches in stranded pattern

Dimensions after blocking: 58in/148cm long x 8.5in/21cm

 

The pattern evolved as I knit the sample - I started knitting at the green end with diagonals of corrugated ribbing separating the bands of circular flower motifs. Diagonals of reverse stranding were introduced about a third of the way along - the blue end of the scarf shows the final version of the pattern.

The scarf can be knit using just the chart for this final version.

The pdf also contains a chart for the green end of the scarf and a transition chart - if you want to knit the scarf exactly as shown here.

 

Charted pattern with complex charts and short written instructions.

 

Flatweave Scarf is also available as part of the Seven Colorwork Adventures eBook.
