New Pattern Releases - The Molly Davis Scarf

I've been working hard this summer and I will be releasing some new patterns over the next few weeks. First up is Molly Davis. I wrote about this one a few weeks ago. I was originally unhappy with the cast off edge which sent me back to the technique books to do some research. You can read about the cast off I used here

It's a triangle scarf, worked with a top down construction technique. It uses an extra set of increases at the edge to create its unusual shape. Some knitters call this shape a heart or a boomerang. The extended points can be used to wrap or tie around the wearer’s neck. The stitch patterns are reversible. The main body stitch pattern is created with two rows of knit and two rows of rib. It appears in text and as a chart so the knitter can work from whichever format they prefer. The edging is simple 2 x 2 rib. 

The name Molly Davis comes from Agatha Christie's story, Three Blind Mice. Many are more familiar with this story in it's stage version as The Mousetrap. Molly and her husband run a boarding house that provides the backdrop to two murders.

You can find the pattern here on Ravelry and it will be up on Patternfish soon.

  1. Beautiful. I love these extended triangles; they are easier to wear with the longer ends.
