Pattern release – Wishbone Loophole Scarf and Cluster Loophole Scarf

Today, I present you two variations of the same idea — one loophole scarf for knitters and one for crocheters!

For knitters, the Wishbone Loophole Scarf offers two cable patterns separated by a rib pattern. The Cluster Loophole Scarf for crocheters has three interesting stitch patterns: easy colorwork and two different cluster stitches!

Both scarves follow the same design. First, you make a loophole (worked in the round) to pull your scarf through so it will never slip off. Then you add length with two different stitch patterns. The resulting scarf is narrow and light enough to be worn on a chilly spring day and keep your neck cosy.

Right after I finished my Neckhugger, a scarf that uses a similar concept, I had this idea to work a kind of buckle in the round. After some swatching, the loophole scarf was born! I decided very early to do a crochet and a knit version. The crochet version uses appr. 125gr of DK weight yan, the knit version uses about 60gr of fingering weight yarn.

Happy knitting and crocheting!
