Keten by LaVisch Designs | Keten is a simple stole, featuring mosaic slip stitch patterning. The combination with garter stitch makes it a perfect choice for both mindless relaxing and somewhat more challenging knitting. Don’t let the color work frighten you though; if you can knit stripes, you can do this! Keten is available in 2 sizes: a scarf and a wrap; pictured is the largest size. The pattern contains fully written out instructions as well as charts for slip stitch sections.
Gauge: 18 sts / 18 rows = 10 cm (4 inches) over garter stitch, measured after blocking
Finished Measurements: Size S (L): 37.5 (51) cm (14 ¾ (20) inches) wide and 172.5 cm (77 inches) long, measured after blocking. The size of this stole can easily be changed by casting on a different number of stitches and by adjusting the number of repeats worked in the various sections. This will, of course, impact the amount of yarn needed.
Materials Used: Fleece Artist BFL Sport (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool; 330 m (361 yds) / 125 g) in the following amounts and colors: C1 - 152 (322) m (166 (352) yds) / 58 (122) g in Coral, C2 - 127 (269) m (139 (294) yds) / 48 (102) g in Granite. Substitute any wool sport weight yarn in colors with sufficient contrast for a similar result. Please note that this yarn grew upon washing and blocking the finished item. Substituting a different yarn may result in a smaller sized scarf or stole.
Needle Size: 4 mm (US 6) / 80 cm (32 inches) circular needles – for garter stitch sections; 4.5 mm (US 7) / 80 cm (32 inches) circular needles (or larger as needed) – for mosaic sections, to minimize “pulling in”
