Pattern Instructions


  • U.S. Size 15 needle
  • 1 skein of Red Heart Country Browns Yarn



Holding 2 strands together CO 26 sts.

Knit 2 rows.  I found this gives the scarf a more secure foundation. 

Row 1:  K2, (Sl, K1, YO, PSSO both  the YO and Knitted St., K2,) repeat from ( ) to end.

Row 2:  Purl across the row

Repeat these 2 rows until 48 inches or desired length, Knit 2 more rows,   BO Block scarf (sides tend to roll in if not blocked).

Fringe: Cut 28 strands of yarn 8 inches long, fold in half and using a crochet hook, add to both ends of the scarf. I used a solid brown strand of your for the fringe, gives it a more earthy  look.

I have been unable to download the pattern for the Irish Shepherd Scarf. Have been able to do others. Please advise or send. Thank you!

The pattern is very easy and the abbreviations are standard abbreviations, but the stitch counts do not add up/line up. I'm going to go through the pattern and see if I can fix it, because I want to use it.

k(knit)2, sl(slip stitch), k1, yo(yarn over), psso(pass slip stitch over) - this means take your slipped stitch and pull it over k1 and yo(yarn over), k2 Yarn Over is a way to increase your stitches. While psso, sl are ways to decrease. Doing this I believe makes your rows appear to move over one each time you do this. When you purl you are purling everything that is on your needle. That includes yarn overs. If ever there is something you would do besides purling it would be in the pattern instructions.

OK, if this is easy why can't I figure it out. I would like to have the creator of this pattern, include definitions on the abbreviated terms and maybe an explanation on those terms. That would make the pattern easier to read and follow. Just a suggestion.

I have been knitting scarfs for a couple years but only "easy" patterns. I have tried this one several times but always end up with more stitches on each row, the further I go the more stitches I have. I know I am messing up on the Row 1 instructions: knit 2(Slip 1, Knit 1, Yarn over, pass slipped stitch overboth the yarn over andknitted stitch., Knit 2) repeat to end. Then Row 2: Purl across the row. Do you purl every stitch including the YO's? I'm sure my mistake is on Row 1, I just can't figure it out. Any ideas of an easier way to say it? Any help would be greatly appreicated. I hate for a pattern to woop me. LOL
