Captain Austen's Scarf on Ravelry $7 (no account necessary)
This pattern is designed so that you can use every yard/meter of two lovely skeins of Malabrigo Twist or 300 yds/274 m of your favorite Aran weight yarn. The Seaweed stitch pattern is lovely to work in knits and purls, plus it is easy to remember after one time through the pattern. And like all the best scarf patterns, it's reversible! Seaweed looks different but equally attractive on the reverse side.
And then there's the fringe! While, in general, I'm not fringe-y, I love working this fringe and can see how Frank Austen could work up fringe for the drawing room quite happily (even if he had a bad cough). You could leave off the fringe (I worked up a plain version of the scarf for my fringe-averse husband), but I think it really adds a special touch to this scarf
What you'll love about knitting Captain Austen's Scarf:
- Seaweed stitch is a straightforward knit-purl pattern - easy to work, provided in both written and charted versions
- Designed to use up just about all of two skeins of Twist - no awkward amounts of leftovers
- Fringe edging is fun to create - you'll start looking at everything around you to see what else might need fringe
What you'll love about wearing Captain Austen's Scarf:
- There is no wrong side to this scarf - sometimes you fall for a scarf that has to be worn "just so" to be seen to advantage; this scarf looks great front- and reverse-facing
- Worked in a lusciously soft yarn like Malabrigo Twist, you will love having this around your neck all winter long
- You will entertain yourself with that fringe
- Makes an excellent gift for any man or woman - just choose a favorite color and knit away!
