Morehouse Farm Merino

Pearl Scarf


Approximately 8” wide and 62” long
(not including fringe)

Worsted weight, about 290 yards;
sample is knit with Morehouse Merino

24” or longer circular #10½ (scarf is knit
the long way)

3½ stitches = 1 inch over seed stitch pattern

Pattern: Seed stitch, *knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch; repeat from * to end of row, ending row with knit 1

Scarf is knit the long way — you’ll be casting on stitches for entire length of scarf. Cast on 155 stitches loosely using an elastic cast-on method, such as long-tail cast-on.

Work in pattern until scarf measures desired width (about 8”). Bind off very loosely (bind-off row should be as stretchable and elastic as knit scarf).

Cut fringe pieces double the length of final fringe plus 25% (in other words: if final fringe should measure 6”, cut pieces 12” plus 25% = 15” long). Loop fringe pieces through edge stitch — one piece of fringe per 2 rows. Fold fringe to even length and twist each fringe clockwise, then twist two fringe together counterclockwise (this last step will be undone after washing scarf). Tie knot at end of two-piece fringe to keep from unraveling.

Wash scarf in washing machine on gentle cycle or knit cycle for about 4 minutes. Use warm water wash, add mild soap. Rinse in warm water and spin dry. After washing, cut off each knot at tip of fringe and undo last twisting (separate fringe so each fringe consists of double yarn twisted together. Lay scarf flat to dry. When completely dry, cut fringe to even length.
