October’s Free Pattern–Blush & Bashful Scarf!
In support of Breast Caner Awareness Month, I thought I’d post my scarf pattern from Celebrity Scarves 2. A percentage of proceeds from the book go to the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help find a cure for breast cancer. This pattern is dedicated to my grandma, Aunt Cherie and the rest of you beautiful, amazing warrior women out there.
Blush & Bashful (aka Vickie’s Scarf)
I used delicate pink nylon mixed with a more vibrant rose wool for this scarf, to represent both the softness and the strength of woman.
2 balls (MC) Berroco Quest (100% Nylon; 82 yds./76m)
1 ball (CC) Koigu
Approx. 165 Beads
Size 9 US Needles
Size 3 US Needles
Gauge: 4.25 sts. per inch in garter stitch with MC and size 9 needles.
Finished size: 86 1/2″ Long (including tassels)
With MC and size 9 needles, CO 26 sts. K2 rows. Start pattern blocks as follows:
Pattern Section #1 (using MC and size 9 needles)
Rows 1-2: K all sts.
Row 3: * K1, YO 3 times. Repeat from * to end.
Row 4: P all knit sts., drop all YOs.
Row 5: K1, * K3tog, YO twice. Repeat from * to last st, K1.
Row 6: K all knit sts., K 1st YO, P 2nd YO (in other words, K2, P1)
Rows 7-8: K all sts.
Repeat these 8 rows 4 times.
Switch needles and yarn.
Pattern Section #2 (using CC and size 3 needles)
With beads pre-strung onto yarn work this section as follows:
Row 1: Work in seed stitch (K1, P1 every row), adding beads every other P st., beginning with 1st P.
Row 2: Work whole row in seed stitch.
Row 3: Continuing in seed stitch, start beading on the SECOND P. STITCH, and repeating every other purl.
Row 4: Work whole row in seed stitch.
Repeat these 4 rows twice more.
Continue alternating these pattern sections (remembering to change needle sizes when switching to the next section) until scarf measures approximately 66 1/2″ and ending with a Pattern Section #1.
K2 rows. BO.
Weave in ends and block.
Make a total of six tassels, to your desired length (I used 20″ strands folded in half). Attach 3 tassels to each end of the scarf and voila, you’re finished!
