#HappyMonday#friends! Today I am sharing with you a project that has taken me the better part of 5 YEARS to complete. Not because this is a difficult pattern but I had moved around the US some and somehow this#projectkept slipping to the bottom of the#yarncontainers ????????♀️. Last year when I moved back to#SanFranciscoI had shipped my mom all the yarn I couldn’t take with me (AKA her earnings as my unpaid#intern) and she found the#WIPburied in there. She finished it off for me and has now claimed it as her own! So,#Voila, here you have the#CaliperStitch#knit#Scarf!! With all our spare time, we are completing all of those#worksinprogress. Who else is finally getting around to finishing off old projects? Let me know what you’re picking back up in the comments below.
Okay, this stitch takes some getting used to but once you get the hang of it you will be so happy you did!! This pattern is worked over a multiple of 13 + 9 stitches. You can increase the pattern for a wider scarf in multiples of 13.
Finished measurements: 10x60in
· US size 6 knitting needles
o 4 Skeins (approx. 1000 yrds) of Red Heart Unforgettable (I used Cappuccino)
· Tapestry needle to weave in ends.
4” x 4” (10 cm x 10 cm) 18 sts and 22 rows
k – knit
p – purl
wyib – with yarn in back
Cast on 74 stitches.
Begin with Stockinette Stitch
Row 1 (wrong side): Purl.
Row 2: Knit.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 two more times.
Begin Caliper Stitch pattern
Row 1 (wrong side): P6, [p1 wrapping yarn twice, p8, p1 wrapping yarn twice, P3] 5 times, purl to end. [10 stitches increased]
Row 2: K6, [drop twice-wrapped stitch off needle to front of work, k4, pick up dropped stitch and knit it, slip 4 stitches purl-wise wyib, drop twice-wrapped stitch off needle to front of work, slip the same 4 stitches back to left-hand needle, pick up dropped stitch and knit it, k7] 5 times, knit to end. [10 stitches decreased]
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until scarf measures 59 inches from cast on edge, or until your desired length.
