Blackberrying in the rain
This scarf is easy to knit, suitable for someone moving on from beginner patterns, or as a quick palate-cleanser for the more experienced knitter.
The scarf starts with a provisional crochet cast-on at the bottom point and works its way upwards in garter stitch, increasing to form a wide shallow triangle with a looped edging. Once the centre triangle is complete, the edging stitches are picked up and a knitted-on border is worked, attached to the edge loops as if they were live stitches.
The pattern is especially suited to colourful variegated yarn as the changing row length of the main body and the shorter rows of the border allow random pooling to occur where it will. The garter stitch body forms a delightfully squishy scarf with a simple but effective edging.
The pattern has fully-written instructions. A chart is also included for the knitted-on border although it is not necessary to use charts to work this scarf. The crochet hook is required only for the crochet cast-on.
