Free pattern friday – the cj scarf

CJ Scarf

the cj scarf story

The CJ Scarf was one of my first designs. Named after my sister CJ.

I never published it so I have decided to put it up for a free pattern for you all to enjoy!

It is a tube style scarf worked in the round, the body is stockinette stitch with a simple cable running up the middle. 

On either end there are simple increases and decreases to create a taper.

Which are then sinched closed with poms attached on either end.

the Cj scarf pattern

Cast on 24 sts using preferred cast on method. Split stitches evenly 12 on each using magic loop method.

Join to work in the round. 

**For this, I used long tail cast on. You may cast on using DPN if you are not comfortable with magic loop. I would recommend using 3 DPN split 12, 6, 6 The cable will be worked on the DPN with 24 stitches, after increases**

**leave about 6 – 8 inch tail to use when cinching the end to add pom**

**Alternate Cast on 48 stitches split evenly on magic loop, or DPN 24, 12, 12.

By doing this you will be skipping the decrease and increase taper rows.

You can still sinch the ends closed to use poms or alternatively block flat and add fringe

Knit 10 rows stockinette and jump to Set up Round**

Increases:

R1-5: K in stockinette – 24

R6: K1, KFB, K to last 2sts on needle, KFB, K2, KFB, K to last 2, KFB, K1 +4 sts

Setup Round: K2, P4, K12, P4, K to end

Pattern Repeat:

R7-R10: K2, P4, K12, P4, K to end

Repeat R1 – R10 roughly 30 times or until desired length.

**When I began the decrease rows I had approx. 25g of yarn left.**

If decreasing Repeat R1 one last time.

**For Alternate Cast on K 10 round stockinette and cast off using preferred method**

Decrease rows:

R1: K all sts – 48

R2: K1, SSK, K to last 3 on needle, K2TOG, K2, SSK, K to last 3, K2TOG, K1 -4 sts

R3: K all sts

Repeat R2 and R3 until you have 24 sts

Once you have completed decreases work stockinette for 4 rows and cast off leaving 6 – 8 inch tail for cinching end and attaching pom.

Block your scarf to open up cable stitches.

Once blocked, cinch ends closed by weaving tail through cast on edge. Add your pom to both ends…. Stay warm!
