Tutorial: Missoni Inspired Scarf in Blue

As promised yesterday, here is the tutorial for this scarf. Feel free to make it as long or short as you like. You could also add a few inches of straight stockinette stitch to more closely match the original. The pattern is written out below. You can also save the pattern a favourite and update your progress on Ravelry!

A darning needle
Knitting needles (circular or straight). I used 4mm.
Prism, Delicato in Thunderclap colourway; Approximately 320 yards used
M Ward, A Wasteland Companion
K-knit, P-purl, K2tog-knit two together, YO-yarn over

Cast on 76 sts (2 edge sts on either side and 4 x 18sts).
Rows 1-3: Garter stitch all rows.
Row 4: P2, knit across, P2.

Row 5: Knit to end.
Row 6: Purl to end.
Row 7: K2 *(K2tog) 3 times, (YO, K1) 6 times, (K2tog) 3 times, repeat from *5 times, K2.
Row 8: P2, knit across, P2.

Repeat rows 5 – 8 until desired length is reached.

Last 3 rows: Garter stitch all rows.
Cast off loosely.

Tencel irons nicely, so I used a steamy iron to block out my scarf. I can never be bothered to used pins or anything; eye it. Just be careful not to squash out the texture. I wouldn't recommend a steamy iron if you've used wool.


  1. I'm so happy to come across a such a beautiful piece knitted in something besides wool (sadly, I'm allergic). Tencel is wonderful!
    Thank you so much for sharing this.

  2. My pleasure! I'll definitely be working with tencel again soon. Thank you for being my first comment!

  3. Love the pattern! So pretty and can't wait to begin one . Thanks so much.

  4. Thank you so much for this pattern. I bought this yarn because the colors were just scrumptious and have been searching for what to knit with it then I came across your post on Ravelry. I thought beautiful, perfect, I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks again.

  5. Beautiful pattern. Would this shawl look good with a yarn that has a bit of a halos. I have a skein of Arctic Dream & looking for that perfect pattern.
