. . . mosaiX scarf . . .

Published today: mosaiX scarf – or wrap, because it is quite large – that goes with the mosaiX hats from a previous post.

_DSC4592-carreIt combines two well known knitting techniques: mosaic knitting and entrelac knitting which makes it quite unique. (Well, that is what I like: combining, experimenting and see if and how it works 😉

Here is a detail of the texture it makes mixing both techniques.

The **mosaiX scarf** is worked in entrelac with squares in a mosaic stitch pattern. It is the same mosaic square throughout but there are some variations that can be used, if you should get bored.

It looks more difficult than it is. Only one color is worked per row, the advantage of ‘mosaic knitting’: only the stitches in the working color are knit, the others are just slipped.

The scarf is finished with an I-cord all around and two large pompoms, one on each side.

I made two large pompoms, the diameter is about 13 cm

Here are some ideas how to make pompoms, or tassels


The basic mosaic stitch pattern is charted and fully written out. The variations of the basic chart are charted only.

at the given gauge, width: ± 40 cm / 16”

What you’ll need
DK weight: yardage will depend on length of the scarf
As pictured (without the pompoms):

4 mm (US 6) straight needles
two 4 mm (US 6) double pointed needles to work the final I-cord
tapestry needle
4 markers if you wish to place them between the squares (optional)

Gauge
The gauge is not crucial but will affect the size of your scarf / wrap.
