Stitch-Sampler Handwarmers & Ribbed Scarf Using Manos Maxima

Stitch-Sampler Handwarmers & Ribbed Scarf Using Manos Maxima

“Learn a sampling of stitch patterns.”

This Churchmouse Classroom First Projects pattern will teach you three essential stitch patterns. For the scarf, you’ll simply alternate two knits and two purls to create handsome vertical ribs. In the handwarmers you'll knit a ridged garter-stitch cuff, a smooth stockinette-stitch hand, and a bit of springy K2/P2 ribbing at the finger edge to echo the scarf. It's easy! The pattern shows you how.

PHOTO TUTORIALS IN THIS PATTERN: • Changing balls in ribbing. • Mattress-stitch seaming in garter stitch and stockinette stitch.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: the long-tail cast-on method, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, combining knits & purls, adding a new ball, binding off in pattern, and weaving in tails. Need help with any of these techniques? See our Learn-To-Knit Companion booklet.

Grab the pattern and needles below, and then pick a shade of Manos del Uruguay Maximaa super-soft, hand-dyed fine merino wool yarn that's easy to knit. The scarf uses 2 skeins, and the handwarmers require just one skein.
