A new scarf pattern: Shifting Ribs

I’m happy to be able to show you all my new scarf pattern: Shifting Ribs. I managed to get out earlier this week on a not-so-terrible weather day to get some pictures.

Shifting Ribs is a reversible worsted weight scarf. It’s ribbing with a twist: twisted stitches morph the pattern from 2×2 ribbing to 1×1 ribbing and back again. The pattern includes instructions for doing a tubular cast on and bind off so that the finished ends are almost identical.

Since the ribbing pulls the fabric in, you end up with a nice squishy scarf that has an appealing pattern. Since it’s reversible, there’s no fussing around to make sure it looks good.

If you’re looking for something a little more interesting than a straight ribbed scarf, this is for you!

$5 US

I knit this up in Quince & Co. Lark (green), Cascade 220 (blue), and Berroco Vintage (brown). I got 7 or 8 repeats out of 200g of each of these yarns, making a nice long scarf (75-85″).

    So striking! I’m going to put this on my ‘scarf list’! Very handsome and yet not ‘his’ or ‘hers’. LOVE!

    I may have to make one of these. Last summer I gave Janie H. my “Tumnus” reversible cable scarf because no one was wearing it. This winter I’m into red, red, red, and wish I had a nice squishy scarf. Of the three yarns, do you have a fave?
