Coming Home by Elizabeth Smith Knits | Coming Home is a cozy scarf/wrap featuring a lovely garter/lace hole stitch pattern that is interesting to make as well as easy to memorize (and I created this video tutorial to help you as well!). Knit up with DK-weight yarn, it’s a great layering accessory.
- 22 sts = 4”/10 cm in st pattern before blocking
- 19 sts = 4”/10 cm in st pattern after blocking
- Exact gauge is not critical but will effect finished size and yardage amounts.
- Because scarf is knit lengthwise and is quite long, your stitch gauge will be stretched out quite a bit after blocking. When swatching, focus on matching the “before blocking” gauge, knowing that when scarf is blocked you will stretch it out to match finished measurements.
Finished Measurements: Approx 13”/33 cm x 62”/156.5 cm (after blocking)
Materials Used: Approx 720 yds of DK-weight yarn, shown in Edna Extra by Dirty Water Dyeworks (85% Polwarth Wool, 15% Silk; 250g = 730 yds), 1 skein.
• US 7/4 mm 32”/80 cm or 40”/102 cm circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge.
• Tapestry needle to weave in ends.
• Optional: removable stitch marker (to mark RS of work).
Pattern Includes: Written and video instructions
