Beautiful one skein scarf knitting pattern with stripes

Knitting Patterns

Sporty stripes make it effortless to add a fresh finish to your look with this versatile cotton scarf. This beautiful one skein scarf knitting pattern with stripes is nothing short of a lovely must-have.

Why? Several reasons: The look of the scarf changes dramatically dependent on how you are wearing it. This gives you lots of styling options. It is also knitted ‘on an angle’, which enhances its draping and adds interest.

But the path it took me to get here and design this – was not without some major bumps!

I sat there on the sofa in utter disbelief. The whole XMAS break I had been happily learning to make a new kind of scarf: a curved scarf. With lots of different color blocks. The yarn was called ‘Pantone’ and I had instantly fallen in love with the colors last summer.

Packaging matters: The picture on the yarn was of a gorgous summer sunset, with lovely red, yellow & blues in the sky, and Pantone swatches next to it. The balls in these same colors were presented in a ‘braid’ of ‘must have’ yarn:

Right next to the yarn display in Michaels was a picture of this scarf and the note: you can make this with this yarn. I instantly loved its happy stripes.

My yarn trip to Michaels was during my vacation in California, and voila — I had found the perfect holiday present for myself. Wonderful. Michaels even had a small sale on — if I ever needed a bit more encouragement. Oh, and did I say that this is bamboo yarn, with a lovely shine to it.

So, armed with this yarn, I started knitting just this Christmas past. I loved the curves. And I finally learned how to increase in a most spectactular, asymmetrical way.

But then.. I found myself getting near the end of my yarn, but not near the end of the pattern …. Wait a minute. How is this supposed to work? I re- read the pattern over again – twice – and only then notice the verdict: one needs 4 skeins of the yarn to make the scarf.

Dumbfounded. I had only bought one skein of this color way as Micheal’s display had me believe it was a 1 skein wonder!

So, to make a long story short: I ripped out a whole bunch of rows, and got to work: I made my own scarf design. And here it is: a one skein wonder of a striped scarflette.

It came out as a really neat original design — even if I say so myself. What do you guys think? Would you like the knitting pattern for this one skein wonder? Leave me a comment below if you do.
