Open Knit Scarf Pattern – Bandana Cowl
Ok. If that movie that this features an oversized version of this open knit scarf pattern would not be called ‘Sweet November’, I would have called my bandana pattern ‘Jump into Spring’ instead.
Have you seen the movie Sweet November?* It’s lovely. Her scarf is great, albeit too bulky for Spring-Summer. So, I designed this Open Knit Scarf Pattern for a lovely chenille bandana for Lola instead.
I wanted to design something that would actually fit within a collar, kind of like a necktie. To give it a bit of structure, shape and form, I added a cable. And voilà. Like it?
Anyhow, chatter aside, this super trendy necktie-scarf is another easy, flat-knit pattern for 2 needles that works up ridiculously fast.
This is a perfect project to knit for beginners. It’s small, and the cable is a faux cable (wink), so all you need to know is knit and purl. THE beginners scarf that also looks good.
The yarn is a super soft, velvety chenille yarn. Despite the fact that chenille’s velvet texture feels luxurious, it tends to be affordable yarn. I picked Louisa Harding* Nerissa, that’s made with 100% cotton. Nerissa is a Worsted-weight or Aran-weight yarn. Per skein of 50 g, you’ll get a length of 98 yrds (90m) You’ll need just 1 skein. Or half, really: this 1-skein wonder scarf leaves you plenty of yarn leftover to make a second project.
If I were to make it again, I’d make it in off-white or red. –Maybe that’s idea for you.
