Free pattern Friday: Scarfy Thing by Beata Jezek

While designer Beata Jezek of Hedgehog Fibres notes that her instructions for knitting Scarfy Thing comprise more of a recipe than a true knitting pattern – she provides more than enough information and guidance to make this a fun and very do-able project!  And one that will allow you to flex your creative muscles while knitting a version that is completely, uniquely you.

From Beata –“The piece is a truly improvised effort and even if I could write a row by row pattern, it would be perhaps more of a hindrance to the creative process. Arm yourself with 2 full skeins in similar colours and and a bunch of Sock Minis or sock yarn scraps in contrasting colours and off you go. Pick up stitches, change direction, cast on some stitches, knit a smaller then a bigger section. It’s fun and freeing. If in doubt, improvise and add another colour. Then add one more colour! Yay!

Need a starting point?  We think the following sock / fingering weight yarns in our current inventory are ideally suited.

    Looks great! But how do you change direction while knitting? Or does it mean binding off, starting a new patch and sewing the two together in the end?

    Best wishes
