4058 Piano Colourwork Scarf (e-pattern)
Skill Level: Intermediate Knitting
This scarf knitted in cosy superfine merino is a great accessory for music lovers. It is worked sideways in one piece. The piano keys section is worked first, using stranded colourwork. A garter ridge forms a fold line and the back of the scarf is worked in stocking stitch to the width of the piano keys section.
To finish this scarf off and fully enclose the back of the colourwork section, the scarf ends are joined using mattress stitch, then the back section is joined to the piano keys section using one of two methods.
1st Method: You can simply cast off your stitches and slip stitch the edges together.
2nd Method: You can work the stocking stitch section together with the cast-on edge and simultaneously cast off for a really neat finish.
