Mischief is the collective name for a group of rats, which is very apt! This versatile scarf pattern features an embossed design of adorable rodents, along with a pretty openwork border (have those ratties been nibbling holes?) and can be knitted in any yarn, to any length or width. Why not try one pattern repeat for a long, wavy, skinny scarf, or cast on many to make a wrap fit for the pied piper. Worked from the centre using a provisional cast on, so the scarf is identical at both ends. Optional bead eyes can be added in every repeat or just on the border, or replaced with bobbles or stitched-on buttons.
Any yarn, plus needle to suit yarn. Model scarf (3 pattern repeats wide) used 240m of aran-weight yarn and a size 10(US) needle, and measures 120x25cm
Needles 1-2 sizes larger for bind-off rows.
Scrap yarn for provisional cast-on.
Beads or buttons for eyes.
Suitable for intermediate knitters
