We so often think of Koigu’s Kersti as the perfect sweater yarn. It knits up beautifully at 5 stitches to the inch and makes for a sweater you can wear year-round.
However, Kersti’s good for more than sweaters, as Kathy showed us with her recently completed scarf.
Knit with 3 complementary colors and in garter stitch, it’s a great way to get some color in your wardrobe.
Here’s how you can knit yourself a Kersti Scarf – (download a pdf file)
5 by 60 inches
3 hanks of Koigu Kersti, each a different color
24” and 40” Size 6 needles
5 stitches per inch in garter stitch
Cast on 18 stitches with Color A.
Slipping the first stitch of every row as if to knit, knit every row for 30 inches.
Change to Color B and knit every row for 30 inches.
With Color C, pick up and knit one stitch in every ridge of the side edge of the scarf. Knit every row for 15 rows. Bind off.
Weave in ends and enjoy!
