Dóchas Scarf Pattern


This single pattern is available as a download.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts (for single shade version): Three 50g balls of Mohair Tweed (70% merino and 30% mohair, 110m/120yds per 50g).

Yarn & Amounts (for striped version): One 50g ball each of Mohair Tweed in shade A (2725 Golden Ash), shade B (2705 Grey Alder) and shade C (2704 Silver Bell).

Metres: 330m.

My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: Bo Beep Pure DK four 50g balls

Needles: 4mm.

Gauge (tension): 19 stitches and 36 rows to 10cm/4ins square over garter stitch using 4mm needles.

Measurements: 50cm wide (at widest point) by approx. 132cm long.

My design ideas and advice: This scarf is garter stitch with a little tiny detail at the edge to make it special. It is knitted “straight up” yet the way the stitches are increasing and decreasing it gives it a triangle shape. So much fun! And so many peeps that pop into the Purl &Jane Studio think the edging is added on after knitting, it isn’t, it’s done as you knit.
This pattern is one of eight pattern that I designed to launch especially at Yarndale 2017 along with the Mohair Tweed which was also just launched that year. The yarn is spun in Donegal so I named all the patterns using Irish words, Dóchas (pronounced DOE-hass) is the Irish word for hope.
