I don't know why, but I really struggled with the pattern for this one. It took me five tries to create the perfect design because I didn't want to make a plain old scarf. I was looking for a design worthy of my two, 9-inch, bamboo
My friend's, I think I created it. This two-color pattern is very easy to knit, and has a neat little magic trick which I will reveal in a moment.
- 1 skein of Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Yarn in Burgundy
- 1 skein of Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Yarn in Mustard
- US size 10 knitting needles
My finished scarf is approximately 7 inches wide and 63 inches long.
Row 1 (Right Side): P5, k5, p5, k5, p5.
Row 2 (Wrong Side): P25.
Row 3: K5, p5, k5, p5, k5.
Row 4: P25.
Repeat Rows 1-4, alternating colors every two rows, until piece measure 63 inches or your desired length. Bind off.
Please note that you don't need to cut and reattach your yarns when changing colors. When you switch colors, simply lift the new yarn strand up on the right side of the previous color strand and pull it snugly.
Now, magicians may not reveal their secrets, but knitters do.
When you look down the right side of the scarf, from your needles toward the cast on edge, you will see that the vertical stripes go - maroon, gold, maroon, gold, maroon.
Now, look up the right side of the scarf, from the cast on edge toward the needles... Abracadabra... and the vertical stripes go - gold, maroon, gold, maroon, gold.
With a flourish of your knitting needles, you can create a magical scarf that Professor Dumbledore would be proud of!
