Chutes and Ladders Scarf
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
This scarf is a simple and fun way to show off your prettiest yarn. It is made in garter stitch, with some yarn overs added and then dropped to create a fun, off~kilter, look.
I had 1 skein of LB Collection® Silk Chiffon Ribbon Yarn, needed a great way to show it off, and a scarf seemed just right! I didn’t want the silk chiffon to have to take all the abuse that my scarves get, so I needed a yarn to work with it. I had some 1 ply yarn I had spun with my drop spindle, using Lion Brand Homespun roving (which can be purchased from the Lion Brand outlet in NJ). So I used those together. I have also made a second scarf using Heartland Thick & Quick and Homespun held together, for those looking for yarn you can pick up at most craft stores.
LB Collection® Silk Chiffon Ribbon Yarn ~ 1 skein
Any coordinating chunky yarn/thick and thin yarn ~ 90 yds
Lion Brand Heartland Thick & Quick® Yarn ~ 1 skein
Lion Brand Homespun® Yarn ~ 125 yds (just under 1 skein)
US 19/16 mm
Not so important.
6~8” wide by 5~6’ long
Stitches and abbreviations used:
CO ~ cast on
K ~ knit
P ~ purl
YO ~ yarn over
Holding 2 strands of yarn together as one.
There are 2 sizes, the first is what I used with the silk and handspun yarn, the second is what I used with the Heartland and Homespun yarn.
When working with the silk chiffon, if it separates at a seam (which happened to me several times) just knot it back together. I really like the little ends poking out here and there! If they bother you, you can always sew the seams back together instead.
Co 9 (12)
Row 1~ 3: K all. (9 (12) sts)
Row 4: (K1, yo twice) 3 (4) times, (K1, yo) 3 (4) times, K to end. (18 (24) loops around needle (sts and yos combined))
Row 5: K each st, drop each yarn over. (9 (12) sts)
Row 6 ~ 8: K all. (9 (12) sts)
Repeat rows 4 ~ 8: to desired length.
Weave in all ends.
