kritzelkrams:

Here is my Merc’s Muffler and since a few people were interested in the pattern I jotted it down for you (hope there are no major typos). If you like to make changes, like add more yellow stripes, cast on less stitches etc. feel free to do so, I would also do changes to a second scarf myself. And don’t take the Gauge too seriously, it’s not that important on a scarf and I am a very tight knitter.

But now without further ado, the knitting pattern:

Merc‘s Muffler (for all classes)

Gauge: 14 sts x 22 rows on 10x10 cm, for a Scarf of 205cm length and 18cm width.
Yarn:DROPS Nepal 50g = 75m, 65% wool & 35% Alpaca
Amount of yarn: 6x red or blue (300g), 2x yellow (100g), 1x white (50g)
Needles: 5mm needles, or needles to obtain gauge.

Abbreviations:
p = purl
k = knit

Cast on 50sts in red and long tail cast on.
1st row: Slip first stitch knitwise, *p1, k1* repeat until end of row. Purl last stitch.
2nd row: Knit as 1st row.
Repeat this pattern for a total of 37 rows, but
[ change to white on the last stitch and purl it with both red and white thread.
Continue knitting in white for 3 rows and change to yellow as explained before at the end of the 3rd row.
Knit 12 rows in yellow.
Change to white and knit 3 rows.
change to red and knit 56 rows.]
Repeat the Stripe pattern in [ ] 4 more times. Add another Stripe of white-yellow-white and another part of 37 rows in red at the end of the scarf.
Bind off.
Sew up all loose threads.

You crafted a Merc‘s Muffler! :D

Helpful tip:
When you change to a new colour, make a knot and bow from the loose threads, so the next knitted loops won‘t change in tension.

If you can’t knit and have nobody to knit it for you, you could order and buy one from me. All Infos here.
