Spencer Scarf (or Cowl) Pattern


This single pattern is available as a download.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank each of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK – Undyed (100% BlueFaced Leicester Wool, 225m/246yds per 100g) in shade A (shade 01 Natural Ecru), shade B (shade 02 Natural Light Brown) and shade C (shade 03 Natural Brown).

Metres for each shade: 225m.

My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: Illustrious Naturals DK One 100g hank each in three shades or Mohair Tweed Two 50g balls each for three shades. Or you can use one 50g ball of each to make a cowl that wraps around the neck once.

Needles: 4mm.

Gauge (tension): 30 stitches and 44 rows to 10cm/4ins square over pattern using 4mm needles.

Measurements: 17cm x 178cm.

My design ideas and advice: I am so excited by the way the stitch patterning works with the 3 row striped pattern. It looks like little spots, while the reverse of the scarf works just as well as the front. This is why I love knitting, small simple details can create an impressive look!
If you have seen this scarf in my Skipton Studio you may have seen the shorter version that’s knitted with Knoll Mohair Tweed. This only uses one 50g ball of 3 shades, is half the length and I joined the cast on and cast off edges to make a cowl.
