Scarves are one of those must have accessories on chilly or windy days, and what could be better than one that resembles a stained glass window pane?!
This pattern was inspired by a gorgeous sunrise photo that a friend of mine took. I had this image in my head of looking at it through a stained glass window and how pretty that would be. My fingers transformed that into a knitting pattern! (A huge thank you to Memory Layne Photos for letting me use the photo of the sunrise she captured! All copyrights of this photo reserved to Memory Layne Photos. Another thank you goes to Corrina Ricke for being my beautiful model.)
This is a fair isle scarf pattern, perfect for those chilly days, that is worked flat with a subtle picot edge. The right and left twists travel diagonally across the sunrise colored yarn to resemble the diamond panes of a stained glass window.
Here is the downloadable pattern of this scarf, available for purchase. The pattern for this scarf was designed by yours truly – Stephanie Showalter. This scarf is perfect for an intermediate knitter, utilizing the techniques of knit, purl, right and left twists, knit two together, yarn overs, and color stranding for the fair isle design. Educational links are provided for the right and left twists.
What do you need:
- Two skeins of yarn, each around 200 yards. You need one in a solid color – it looks best in dark gray or black. And one in a variegated color (any one of my colorways would do).
- US number 3 (3.25 mm) needle
- US number 5 (3.75 mm) needle
- Tapestry needle to sew the picot edge and weave in ends
- (2) Stitch markers.
