Knit the Look: Windowpane scarf

Knit the Look: Windowpane scarf

We’re headed into that blissful time of year where you can trade in your coat for just a big glorious scarf, and I adore this windowpane-check number photographed on model Taylor Marie Hill. Hers is woven and fringed, but for a knitted alternative, all you need is Olga Buraya-Kefelian’s pattern Bygge. It’s written for the luxurious Woolfolk Tynd, and would be gorgeous in Color 15 (black) and Color 1 (ivory). Olga varies the size of the checks, which you could do or not do, according to your preference. And of course, there’s always room for fringe!

  1. While I don’t knit sweaters because they’re too hot for me, the weather here in the Pacific NW is more often than not cool enough for a shawl or vest. But why haven’t I thought of making a big scarf to wrap up in? I’ve relegated them to “winter” only. Silly me…

    • It is. All the Woolfolk yarns are. I haven’t knit with Tynd but I’ve made Grus with Far, and I have to say I think it’s totally worth it. An investment piece, if you will. It is such a pleasure to knit, and so decadent to wear. I think it might be worth saving up for, or asking for the yarn as a Christmas or birthday gift.

      Or you could make it with a much more affordable yarn like KnitPicks Stroll, which is still natural fiber.

    • You could knit it in pretty much any yarn of the same weight — whatever creates a fabric you like. The beauty of scarves is there’s no fit to be concerned about, so yarn substitution is a lot less risky!

  2. So Karen, you know this already right? That you’re a big knitting influencer? When you feature a pattern here, it always ends up in the Ravelry Top 20. :)
