The Inconceivable Scarf (Princess Bride)


Drop. Your. Needles. Since the invention of the scarf, there have been five scarves rated the most creative, the most impressive. This one left them all behind.

This scarf is inconceivably different on each side. There were just too many quotes that needed to be included!

Because of the two-pattern nature of the scarf, this is not a good pattern if you have never attempted double knitting. However, it may not be as hard as you think!

There is a class on the Craftsy website by Alasdair Post-Quinn called “Adventures in Double Knitting”. There are hours of double knitting instruction in this class, including a segment about two-pattern double knitting. This class is also great for learning how to double knit if you have never attempted it before. Instructions about how to double knit are not included in the pattern, just the pattern charts. It is easier to learn from the hundreds of videos online than any series of mediocre pictures that I could take.

You will need two colors of light fingering weight yarn (about 430 yards of each color) and size 2 (2.75mm) needles. The finished model scarf is 5.5” wide and 62” long.
