Seafoam Scarf and Wrap - Modern Cotton Version

Seafoam Scarf and Wrap - Modern Cotton Version

“Light and breezy.”

In the warmer months, you might prefer to wear something light, breezy and cool to the touch. If so, this pattern will suit you nicely. Using Berroco Modern Cotton certainly adds to this project's appeal.

Inspired by Barbara Walker's Seafoam pattern from A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, this "garter stitch with an aristocratic air" is perfectly paired with soft and sophisticated Modern Cotton. The stitch pattern follows the linear stranding that naturally occurs in this yarn, allowing for effortless drape.

We loved how the scarf turned out so much that we resized it for a generous wrap, just right for swinging over your shoulders with a summer frock or tee.

Click on "The Free Pattern" tab to see the pattern, then choose your favorite color (you'll need one skein for the scarf or four skeins for the generous wrap size). If you’d like to learn more about the yarn, just head over to the Berroco Modern Cotton page.

US 7 (4.5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.

Approx. 19 sts = 4"/10cm in pattern stitch, blocked.

See the "Basic Details" tab for size, yarn, needle, and gauge information.

GLOSSARY: K = knit; YO = yarn over (bring yarn forward between needles, then back over right needle); for multiple YOs, keep winding the yarn around right-hand needle the required number of times ending with yarn in back ready to knit.

Cast on: Using long-tail cast-on method, cast on 26 (86) stitches. Note: Pattern stitch is a multiple of 10, plus 6.

Edging: Knit three rows.

Seafoam stitch: Row 1 (cast-on tail is to the left): K6, *YO, K1, YO twice, K1, YO three times, K1, YO twice, K1, YO, K6*; repeat between * * to end. Note: you may want to clip a pin or locking marker into first stitch in this row to mark the beginning of your ‘business’ rows.
Row 2: Knit, dropping YOs off needle as you come to them. Note: After this row, tug gently on the work to fully extend the dropped stitches and ‘set’ the fabric.
Rows 3 & 4: Knit.
Row 5 (cast-on tail is to the left): K1, *YO, K1, YO twice, K1, YO three times, K1, YO twice, K1, YO, K6*; repeat between ** to last 5 stitches; YO, K1, YO twice, K1, YO three times, K1, YO twice, K1, YO, K1.
Row 6: Repeat Row 2.
Rows 7 & 8: Knit.
Repeat Rows 1–8 until desired length or you have just enough yarn left to work second edging and bind off (approx. 5 (10) yards/m). End having just worked a Row 1 or Row 5.

Second edging: Knit three rows.

Bind off: Bind off all stitches, matching tension of cast-on end as closely as possible.

Finishing: Weave in ends (there’s no ‘wrong side’; hide your ends carefully and trim after first few wearings).

Blocking: Roll in a damp towel and let sit for a few hours. Remove from towel and lay flat to dry, pulling lengthwise to open up dropped strands.
