Seaman's Scarf Knitting Pattern

Designed by Knit Picks Design Team

Seaman's Scarf Knitting Pattern

Ribbing around the neck hugs the scarf close, keeping the cold wind out. This makes an exceptionally warm scarf.

Size:
Approximately 9" x 50"

Gauge:
3 sts = 1" in St st

Materials:
Size 13 US (9 mm) needles
3 hanks Knit Picks Cadena
70% Wool, 30% Superfine Alpaca
110 yards/100 grams
Cinnamon 23786 (Note: this color is discontinued.)

Instructions
Loosely CO 32 sts using cable cast on.
Knit 4 rows in garter stitch.

Establish cable base with 3 stitch garter stitch border:
Row 1 (RS): Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2, *P2, K6; rep from *, ending P2, K3
Row 2: Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2, *K2, P2; rep from *, ending K5
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 three more times.

8 Row Cable Sequence with 3 stitch garter stitch border:
Row 1 of Cable Sequence (RS):
Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2, *P2, slip next 6 stitches off left needle, use left needle to pick up the 2 far right stitches leaving the other four stitches in the front, use the right needle to place the middle 2 stitches on the left needle, finally use the right needle to place the far left 2 stitches onto the left needle, k6; rep from *, ending P2, K3.
Row 2 of Cable Sequence: Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2, *K2, P2; rep from *, ending K5
Row 3 (RS): Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2 *P2, K6; rep from *, ending P2, K3
Row 4: Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2, *K2, P2; rep from *, ending K5
Repeat Rows 3 and 4 two more times.
Repeat Cable Sequence 7 times ending with Row 1, preparing to flow into neck ribbing.

Neck Ribbing:
Row 1 (WS after Row 1 of Cable Sequence):
Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, *P2, K2; rep from *, ending P2, K1
Row 2: Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, *K2, P2; rep from *, ending K3.
Repeat these two ribbing rows until ribbing rows measure 9". End by purling across last row (WS row). Do not bind off because you will be grafting the two halves of the scarf together using Kitchener stitch. Place sts on holder.
Knit second half of scarf exactly like the first.
Graft the two together using Kitchener stitch with the knit side of the edges facing you. (You could also use the 3 needle bind off or seam them together. Alternatively you could simply knit it in one piece but the cables will be reversed.)
Block carefully to enhance cables and set ribbing.
