Here is the stitch pattern I used for Ariel (published in issue 1 of Yarn Forward, you can see it on the cover) and to make my mum’s scarf.

Each repeat is worked over 10 sts.

For my mum’s scarf I worked 3 repeats with a single slipped stitch selvage at both sides, so her scarf was 32 sts wide. I used about 100g of HipKnits Aran silk, and 5mm needles. I’ll try and get a photo of the finished scarf soon, although it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to convince my mum to model it.

Edit: oops! apparently I can’t translate a pattern from the round to flat knitting without forgetting to reverse the wrong side rows. Dear oh dear.

To answer a question asked in the comments about curling. Like all stocking st based patterns this pattern does curl a bit. The bias lacy pattern cuts down on this and blocking will also make a big difference. Yarn choice will also affect how much the scarf curls, you might want to steer clear of yarn with a lot of stretch, or that blocking doesn’t have much effect on.

With less than two weeks to go, we still don’t know what Brexit will look like, or whether it’s happening at all on October 31st. Like every other small business in the UK we’ve been trying to plan, without having much idea of what we’re planning for.
