The Design

“Infinite styling possibilities.”

This simple, lightweight knit square mimics the shape and scale of a classic silk scarf. I-cord edgings and bind-off details create the look of a hand-rolled hem. This pattern is more of a ‘recipe,’ really, with details given for three variations and tips on how to create your own.

We knit this version of the Pretty Perfect Square in silky, fuzzy favorite, Rowan Kidsilk Haze—with four colors in fun, funky, uneven stripes. Delicate and fine, with a lovely halo, Kidsilk Haze creates scarves that are slightly sheer, weightless, and warm.

Pick up the pattern below, and then select a colorway from the combinations we’ve tried and loved. Each colorway contains one skein of each of the four colors, enough to make the 30” square pictured (adjust yardage if changing size). Visit the Rowan Kidsilk Haze page to choose your own colors!

KNITTER'S NOTES
Don’t skip the swatching on this one! Though it's a simple stockinette square, swatching will give you an opportunity to practice techniques, make sure you love your fabric and calculate how many rows you'll need to get a perfect square. You will also be able to play with colors and striping sequences, so you're sure to love your finished product. We've provided details for the samples shown, but have also given you a basic recipe to follow so that you can create your own unique variations.
