Sissy Scarf

sissy scarf montage

Adapted from an original design first published in The Knitter as the Cheyenne Tabard, Sissy is a luxurious scarf to really wrap up in and keep the winter chills away from your neck.

Tension - unwashed tension (for Colourmart yarn) 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm over stocking stitch on 4.5mm needles, giving a finished, washed tension of 20 stitches and 30 rows to 10 cm. If using yarn that does not require washing before wearing, the only tension to worry about is this finished one. (tension given over stocking stitch as it's just so much easier to measure, but you know, this is a scarf, not a fitted sweater so it's probably not worth over-stressing about). I suspect that Quince & Co's Lark might well be a good substitution.

Finished size: approximately 30cm (12") wide and 188cm (74") long

2 x 150g cones (452m / 490yds per cone) Colourmart 2/6nm 5/95 Cashmere / Merino wool, or approximately 904m(980yds) heavy dk / aran weight yarn.

4.5mm needles, or the size required to give you the correct tension.

Your preferred needle / latch hook for darning ends in.

Instructions for stitch patterns used are both written and charted.
