The Design

"Pretty twists, airy fabric."

We first used this traditional Estonian stitch in a scarf pattern for the 2016 Puget Sound LYS Tour. Not lace, but so lace-like! Not cabled, but twisted by ‘spinning’ a cluster of stitches 180°! Simple, yet dramatic, we also love the look of this stitch in an airy poncho.

The Spin-Stitch Scarf is light, delicate, and floaty in Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud. This lace-weight yarn’s core of silk has quiet, tonal flecks that seem to glimmer within the soft cloud of kid mohair. Tweed Silk Cloud brings a gentle, dreamy touch to the spun stitches of our scarf!

The Details

Scarf: Small, approx. 10½ x 55"/27 x 140cm. Large, approx. 16½ x 73"/ 42 x 185cm.
Details given for small scarf; large scarf in parentheses ( ).

Small scarf: 3 skeins Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud (190 yds/ 174m each); Shown in color 2205 Caper.
Large scarf (not shown): 5 skeins Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud (190 yds/174m each. Or Approx. 460 (920) yds/420 (840)m lace-weight or fingering-weight yarn (lace-weight will be more sheer).

US 8 (5.0mm) needle, or size to obtain gauge.
One double-point needle (DPN) 2-3 sizes smaller than gauge needle.
Stitch markers, including a locking marker.
Darning needle to finish.
Approx. 54 (72) fork blocking pins (or twice as many T-pins) for pinning scallops; blocking wires or extra pins for ends.

Approx. 24 sts/24 rows = 4"/10cm in pattern after blocking.
Note: It’s a good idea to knit—and block—a swatch, not for exact gauge, but to be sure you like the fabric.

To make sure you're spinning stitches in the correct direction, notice that all spins in any spin row are spun in the same direction, and all spins in any vertical column slant in the same direction. When you begin a spin, glance at spin directly below to check that you are spinning in the same direction.

Blocking this project will make all the difference. When finishing, our fork blocking pins, sturdy and light, make blocking the rounded scallops along the edge of this scarf a breeze!
