Miss Sadie's Scarflette ~ A Free Knitting Pattern
Miss Sadie’s Scarflette is an alchemical combination of style and simplicity. It uses the simplest techniques in knitting and takes only a few hours to complete! Very warm and comfortable to wear, you can position your scarflette multiple ways for a different look, and there is little bulk in the back to get in the way of your coat, backpack or baby carrier!

Level: Easy – suitable for beginners
Size: One size fits most. To make the scarflette looser, knit a few inches longer than the recommended 19.5 inches. To make it tighter, knit fewer inches.
Yarn/Needles/Notions: Patons Soy Wool Solids (30% soy, 70% wool); 110 yards [100 meters] 80 grams): 2 balls; shown here in #70129 Natural Sky/Size US 15 (10 mm): straight/Yarn needle
Gauge: 10.5 sts and 20 rows = 4” [10 cm] in Garter Stitch worked with 2 strands held together
CO – Cast on
Sl – Slip
Sts – Stitches
Rep – Repeat
K – Knit
K2tog – Knit 2 together
BO – Bind off
CO 26 sts.
Row 1: Sl 1 as if to knit, K across.
Rep Row 1 until work measures 19.5 inches from cast-on edge.
BO 23 sts.
With 2 sts remaining on the left-hand needle, K2tog and BO final stitch leaving a 10” tail for seaming. Note: Knitting 2 together before binding off your last stitch provides a neatly squared-off corner.
Lay scarflette out vertically in front of you. Seam 4.5 inches at the upper right edge to 4.5 inches of the lower left edge [see diagram below]. Once seamed, the scarflette will resemble a tube in the shape of a parallelogram. Weave in ends. Put on scarflette and fold down “lapels.” Position as desired and wear with style!
