Dewdrop Scarf Pattern

Versión Española

Dewdrop ChartMaterials: This scarf is made with a ribbon yarn and a kid mohair yarn combined on 6mm or 7mm straight needles. For ribbon yarns you can go to www.yarndex.com and with an advanced yarn search you can enter ‘ribbon’ into the texture box and you will find more than 200 different ribbon yarns which you’ll be able to buy either online or at your LYS. For kid mohair you could use anywhere from a lace-weight up to a light worsted or DK weight with no problem. This is a great stash reducing scarf.

Gauge: Not too important as it will vary with the yarn combination you choose. For a wide enough scarf, and to prevent a dense fabric avoid using needles smaller than 6mm.

Chart Legend:
Blank boxes: Knit
Black Dot: Purl
Empty circle: Yarn over (If the stitch prior to the yarn over is a purl stitch and the following stitch is knit, simply knit the next stitch without bringing the yarn down to the back of the work, this will create a yarnover. If the stitch prior to the yarnover is a knit stitch and the following one is a purl stitch, make one complete counter-clockwise wrap of yarn around the right-hand needle bringing the yarn up to the front of the work just prior to purling the next stitch.)
Slash-3: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch back over the 2nd stitch and off the right-hand needle.

Instructions:

Cast on 23 stitches.
Every row has a border stitch at the beginning and end. To work the border stitch, slip first stitch of every row as if to purl; knit the last stitch of every row.

Row1: 1 border stitch; 3 x the 6-stitch pattern repeat; the last 3 stitches of the chart; finish with a border stitch.

Rows 2 – 8: continue as in chart, but don’t forget the initial and final border stitches.

Repeat the chart for a total of 11 times. Then, work chart rows 1 to 6.

Then for the neck portion of the scarf follow these steps:

Row 95: border stitch, *K1, P1* repeat till the last stitch, the border stitch, which should be a knit st.
Rows 96 – 153: continue in 1×1 ribbing for a total of 59 rows, end with a rs row.

Row 154: wrong side of knitting; begin chart at row 8.

Rows 155 – 244: Repeat the chart for a total of 11 times ending with chart row 8.

Rows 245 – 250: Knit rows 1 to 6 of chart.

Cast off loosely (or with a needle one size larger) by knitting the k sts. and purling the p sts. as they present themselves.

  1. I agree with Jacqueline Lydston if you offer this is words versus a chart I would love to knit it out of silk

  2. I really love this pattern, but due to a learning disability, I cannot understand the chart. Is there any way I can be sent the pattern in standard directions, e.g., words?

    • Dewdrop stitch is in the first Barbara Walker treasury, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
