Mixed Signals

Mixed signals in Malabrigo1I finished the first iteration of this scarf quite some time ago, but I'm only just now getting the final pattern write-up complete.

The Mixed Signals Scarf is a one-skein scarf that works up very quickly and is a great way to combine the different textures of knitting and crochet.

The version in this first picture is knit with one skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the American Beauty colorway.

The scarf is constructed by crocheting two medallions, then picking up stitches on the edge of one medallion and knitting the pattern until you are almost out of yarn. Then a three-needle bind off joins the second medallion to the other end and you're ready to roll.

Finished measurements: Approximately 5" x 54" when lightly blocked.

Yarn requirements: Approximately 215 yards of any worsted weight yarn.

Mixed signals in Malabrigo2Needles/Hook: US 7 (4.5mm) knitting needles, plus an extra needle, any size, for three-needle bind off
Size I/9 (5.5mm) crochet hook

Gauge: Not too important in a scarf. If you like the way the stitches look, you've got gauge! Samples knit at 5.25 stitches to 1 inch in pattern, lightly blocked.

$5 payable via Paypal

You'll receive an email with download instructions for the 3-page PDF file of the pattern.

Mixed signals in Stitch Jones1Here's another sample knit with one skein of Stitchjones Handpainted Worsted in the Andes Mint colorway.

Great job! I love that you combined the two needle arts into one attractive project.
