Striped Linen Stitch Scarf Using Brooklyn Tweed Arbor

Striped Linen Stitch Scarf Using Brooklyn Tweed Arbor

"Soft, woolly stripes."

We’ve long been searching for a fresh way to revisit the gorgeous linen stitch. And by George, we think we’ve got it! We’ve come up with this free adaptation to our Striped Linen Stitch Scarf pattern to make a scarf with a slightly different striping sequence that takes full advantage of linen stitch’s handsome, woven effect.

You’ll need four skeins chosen from the sweeping color palette of Brooklyn Tweed Arbor. Series of gradients, cheerful brights, moody jewel tones, sophisticated neutrals all work harmoniously in this ingenious, textural stitch.

Firmly spun at a DK-weight, Arbor is a classic workhorse of a yarn that is entirely produced in the United States. The round, 3 ply composition creates firm fabric with great stitch definition and light, woolly softness.

Click on "The Free Adaptation" tab to see the instructions. We’ve selected a few of our favorite combinations of Arbor below or go to the Arbor page to pick your own colorway.

FINISHED SIZE
Approx. 5 x 66"/13 x 168cm after blocking.

YARN
4 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (145 yds/132m each), one each in four colors. Designate colors A through D (our sample used the Sock Monkey colorway: A = Humpback, B = Heron, C = Driftwood, D = Alizarin).
Or approx. 380 yds/347m total of an equivalent DK-weight yarn. Our sample used approx. 134 yds/122m of Color A, and 82 yds/75m each of Colors B, C, and D.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 10 (6mm) 29"/74cm circular needles, or size to obtain gauge.
Stitch markers. Blunt darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 23 sts = 4"/10cm in linen stitch, before blocking.

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


Cast on:
For this sample, we opted to omit the I-cord bind-off on the cast-on and bound-off edges.
With Color A, using long-tail cast-on method, cast on 380 sts. (An 8-yd/m tail should be plenty.) Cut off excess tail leaving an 8"/20cm tail.

Linen stitch:
Set-up row (WS): Still using Color A, *P1, YB, Sl 1, YF*, repeat between * * to last 2 sts, P1, YB, Sl 1. Cut yarn, leaving a 5"/13cm tail.
Work Rows 1 and 2 as directed in original pattern, using color sequence as follows:
Rows 1–3 (3 rows): Color A.
Rows 4–5 (2 rows): Color B.
Rows 6–7 (2 rows): Color C.
Rows 8–11 (4 rows): Color D.
Rows 12–13 (2 rows): Color C.
Rows 14–15 (2 rows): Color B.
Rows 16–19 (4 rows): Color A.
Repeat Rows 4–19 two more times.
With Color A, repeat Row 2 (WS) of original pattern as directed.

Bind off:
Bind off in pattern on RS, matching tension of cast-on edge as closely as possible. Tip: Using a needle one size larger in right hand may help keep bind-off from being too tight. Check tension of bound-off edge every 3−4"/8-10cm and correct if necessary.

Finishing:
Tie and trim fringe as directed in original pattern.

COLORWAY: Sock Monkey (Humpback, Heron, Driftwood, Alazarin).

COLORWAY: Chocolate Bunny (Loam, Carob, Degas, Hammock).
