About This Scarf:

Free Pattern - The Mia Scarf - Ravin Sekai Designs1

This scarf has a very simple origin story. I am very much a gift giving knitter, which I think a lot of us crafty people are. If you’re like me, you enjoy, not only the act of creating, but gifting those creations to others to enjoy. What’s better than seeing an item you worked on for hours and put tons of your heart into being worn by someone you love?

So, every Christmas, (and most birthdays, Father's days, Mother's days… you get the picture) I knit or crochet for just about everyone in my life. I try to make everyone something special that suits their personalities. Sometimes I even take requests. (It makes for a busy holiday season, let me tell you!)

For Christmas a few years back, I decided to make my good friend a new scarf. She gave me a few ideas of what she liked in scarves and chose a color she loved. From her pointers, the design for The Mia Scarf was born.

The original design was a little different from this rendition, though. Her scarf was an infinity scarf, where I started with a provisional cast on, then attached the ends together with the kitchener stitch. There are tons of great youtube videos out there to show you this method of making a scarf. However, for today’s pattern, I wanted a simpler look, and I just LOVE tassels on a scarf! So, a straight scarf with tassels is what we have here.

However, with this design, feel free to modify it however you like. If you want an infinity scarf, try out the provisional/kitchener method, it makes some seamlessly beautiful scarves! If you don’t like tassels, leave them off. This is your scarf, customize it however you like!

This scarf looks lovely however you wear it, too. With the reversible rib cable, both the right and wrong sides of the scarf have their own unique and stunning style. The cables and raspberry stitch really give this scarf a lovely structured look that will have everyone asking, where did you get that scarf!?

I used Lion Brand Yarns Touch of Alpaca for this design because I just love how soft it is and the drape of finished garments. But, you can make this scarf with just about any type of yarn from DK to bulky. Some good substitutes for this Touch of Alpaca are Knit Picks Mighty Stitch (80% acrylic, 20% wool) or Brava Worsted (100% acrylic), Novita Puro Batik (100% acrylic), Caron Jumbo, or Lion Brand Yarns Pound of Love (100% acrylic). Pound of love is a little less dense, but it has the same gauge. That gives you some options both in $$$ and availability!

This scarf is also pretty unisex as well, it just depends on the yarn and color of yarn.

I love to see what you create!
