An oldie and a goodie

This is one of our best selling easy, easy scarf pattern.  I made the original one back in 2004 when we first opened.  I've updated the sample recently with our new handpainted Dia Duit Mohair. 

Dia Duit is our new local handpainted yarns available exclusively at Stitch DC.  I hope to share more about this new venture very soon with all of you!

The Scarf Pattern
Materials:  1 skein Dia Duit Mohair (shown in colorway "Frankly my dear...") (silk mohair approximately 230 yards per skein)
US 8 knitting needles

Gauge:  4.5 stitches equal 1" in 3x3 ribbing

With US 8 needles, cast on 36 stitches.

Row 1: Knit 3, Purl 3 to end.
Repeate row 1 until desired length.  If you use the entire skein, it will be about 6 feet long and to make sure you have enough to bind off repeat Row 1 until approximately 1 yard of yarn remains and bind off loosely.
Weave in end and Enjoy!!!
