|When I offered to knit a scarf for a certain man in my life not long ago, my proposal was met with a weary sigh of cautious expectations. Realizing that not everyone may be as excited as I am about handcrafted articles of clothing but confident in my talent as a knitter, I set out to think up a design that would not look hand knitted at all, and up came Henry. A subtle slip-stitch herringbone pattern on a stockinette background creates a beautiful fabric that appears woven rather than knit, while the lengthwise set-up of the scarf differs from the usual bottom-to-top knit-purl shawl construction.
The result is a classic scarf with clean lines and a sophisticated design suitable for anybody, but especially for those who may not necessarily choose to sport a hand knitted item. A larger version of this scarf would also make a fine baby blanket or throw.
The scarf is worked lengthwise. The cast-on and cast-off rows form the side edges of the finished scarf and are worked as a round cast-on/bind-off. A three-stitch slipped-stitch edging makes up the bottom and top border of the finished scarf. The difficulty of the main pattern is on the mellow side, set-up and finishing require a little more time and attention, and are therefore tangy.

|If substituting yarn, choose a fingering or sock-weight yarn, as the stitch pattern produces a fairly dense fabric. You’re trying to create a soft fabric that drapes well with just enough substance to hold its own shape and show off the pattern.
Because of the large number of stitches on the needle, check your work often to be sure the stitch pattern is lining up correctly. They’re long rows to work backwards if you make a mistake!
If changing the number of sts in the scarf (to make the scarf longer or shorter), be sure you have a multiple of 4 sts. When casting on using the waste yarn, CO half of the desired number of sts, plus 1.
The stitch pattern, Woven Transverse Herringbone, is taken from Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns, pg. 96.
Wyif: With yarn held to front of work
Using waste yarn and smaller needle, CO 227 sts.
Using working yarn, work as follows:
Row 1 [WS]: K1, [k1, yo] to last st, k1.
Row 2 [RS]: [Sl 1 wyif, k1] to end. [452 sts]
Row 3 [WS]: Sl 1 wyif, k1, sl 1 wyif, p to last 3 sts, sl 1 wyif, k1, sl 1 wyif.
Read through the following steps before beginning. Turn needle to have WS facing. There are two types of sts on the needle: purl sts and knit sts. The purl sts are the knit sts from previous row. The knit sts are the slipped sts from previous row. The first st on the needle as you begin should be a purl sts followed by a knit st.
Step 1: Insert tapestry needle from right to left through first 2 sts on left needle (a purl st and a knit st). Drop sts on tapestry needle from left needle and draw yarn through.
|Carefully remove waste yarn from CO edge. Work will not unravel; the tubular CO edge will match the BO edge.
Weave in all ends.
Soak scarf in soapy water, rinse carefully and squeeze gently to remove excess water.
|ABOUT THE DESIGNER|
|Mareike learned to knit from her mom at a young age back in Germany. After moving to the South of the United States, where the climate does not inspire the design and use of woolen accessories, knitting gave way to other interests, but not for long.
Mareike feels uncomfortable without a pair of needles in her hands.
