Miss Sadie’s Scarflette

Miss Sadie is the first knitting pattern I designed and shared in 2010. Since then, she’s been made by hundreds of knitters. I’ll never forget how exciting it was to discover that knitters 4,741 miles away from me were making my pattern and posting it in Russian needlecraft forums. It was an inkling of how special and connective knitting can be.sadie 2

The original blog is now extinct, so I freshened up the post, kept the original photos (eek), and added a few much-more-charming customer images at the end.sadie

Miss Sadie is the same fun, easy, squishy, cozy knit she always has been! I hope you enjoy.

MATERIALS

  • 2 balls/skeins worsted weight yarn – 80 g each, held double
  • US 15 (10 mm) knitting needles
  • A yarn needle

GAUGE

10.5 sts and 20 rows = 4” [10 cm] in Garter Stitch worked with 2 strands held together

SIZES

One size fits most. To make the scarflette looser, knit a few inches longer than the recommended 19.5 inches. To make it tighter, knit fewer inches shorter. Adjust the width of the scarflette lapels by casting on more or fewer stitches.

NOTES

ABBREVIATIONS

CO – Cast on

Sl – Slip

Sts – Stitches

Rep – Repeat

K – Knit

K2tog – Knit 2 together

BO – Bind off

PATTERN

CO 26 sts.

Row 1: Sl 1 as if to knit, K across.

Rep Row 1 until work measures 19.5 inches from cast-on edge.

BO 23 sts.

With 2 sts remaining on the left-hand needle, K2tog and BO final stitch leaving a 10” tail for seaming. Note: Knitting 2 together before binding off your last stitch provides a neatly squared-off corner.

FINISH

Lay scarflette out vertically in front of you. Seam 4.5 inches of upper side edge to 4.5 inches of opposite lower side edge [see photos below].

Once seamed, the scarflette will resemble a tube in the shape of a parallelogram. Weave in yarn ends. Put on scarflette and fold down “lapels.” Position as desired and wear with style like some of these beautiful people.
