Green Grass of Spring Shawl//Design

This is my very first pattern that I made, and I decided (due to a few demands) that I would make it available on my blog - if you do a wee search on Ravelry you'll find it also. So here's the pattern:

Yarn - RYC Cotton Jeans in Jute or any other 4-ply yarn (you could knit this in a sports weight)
Needle - 6.5mm circulars and straights

1. Cast on 1 stitch on straight needles, knit 1.
2. Increase 1 at beginning of row, purl to last stitch, increase 1. This
    will be your basic pattern.
3. Every odd row will be a knit row, and every even row will be a purl row.
4. On row 11 (knit row), knit 5, *sl1 k1 *carry on in this way to last 5 stitches, k5
5. Purl row 12 and carry on
5. Every 10 rows - 11, 21, 31 etc follow the instruction 4.
 When my scarf started to get a little big, I swapped to circular needles and carried on. You can make this as big or small as you want - just get a good size to wrap around your neck.
Cast off loosely and enjoy your new scarf.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my new pattern, I hope you have enjoyed it - if you have any questions feel free to contact me as knittingv on Ravelry or email me

  1. I love the texture of that yarn, and it looks great in that color! Congrats on finishing your first pattern, such a great milestone!

  2. What a great job for your first pattern! It's very cute and has great drape if you make it larger as I did for more of a shawl then a scarf. It's nice and quick as well and makes a great last minute gift idea too!
