I discovered Lang Yarns Jawoll Magic when I was looking for a 6 ply yarn to make socks in and I loved it from the first time I cast on with it. Soft, washable & self-striping, what’s not to love? However, since then, I haven’t seen anyone else knitting with it so I feel like people might be missing out! This super simple scarf pattern shows off the yarns potential & as you get the scarf out of a single ball it’s a great quick knit without too much commitment! Hopefully you’ll like the ‘Magic’ in it as much as I do.
Yarn, Needles & Notions
Yarn: Lang Yarns, Jawoll Magic 6 ply (150g ball, (75% Wool, 25% Nylon). Shown in ‘0070’
Needles: 5.50mm needle for working flat. We like Knit Pro Zings for everything!
Notions: Scissors, Darning Needle for ends
Gauge & Finished Size
Gauge: Gauge is not important for this pattern but with 5.5mm needles, is approx. 16 stitches * 24 rows: 10cm/4 inches (firmer blocking horizontally to release the lace but not stretch vertically)
Finished Size: 20cm * 280cm blocked. Blocking is required to show the lace detail. 290cm is completely optional – the pattern goes to this length to use the whole ball.
k – Knit
p – Purl
K2Tog: Knit next 2 stitches together
YO: Yarn Over.
Sl1p: Slip stitch purl wise. This is to create a neat edge on both sides of the scarf
Lace Cast On: A knit cast on - check out Cheryl Brunette's tutorial on YouTube if you're not sure.
Yarn Over Cast Off: A loose cast off - check out KNITFreedom's tutorial on YouTube if you're not sure.
Not sure of the technical name for this stitch but I think of it as Corset Stitch due to the lace look of the Yarn Overs
Cast on 36 stitches using the lace cast on method.
Row 1: Sl1p, k1, *YO, k2tog*, repeat * * to last two stitches, k2
Repeat row 1 until scarf measures 290 cm (or preferred length). (Yep, simple)
Cast off using YO cast off.
The length means it can be wrapped three times for extra snuggliness.
Finishing & Care
Sew in ends using the yarn needle, block to the desired width, wear, look fab! Perhaps post a pic on Instagram, tagging us @loveliestyarnco & using hashtags #tlyclovelies & #loveliestyarnco, & share on Ravelry!
Follow instruction on ball – it is machine washable! Dry flat.
To make a wider scarf, add stitches in multiples of 2. We are currently testing a wider, shorter version.
