Coffee Circle Scarf Kit by Marin Melchior
This beautiful and dense double knit scarf brings together semi-solid and variegated merino yarns for your knitting pleasure. The pattern features both chart and written instructions, and the design is symmetrical front and back and top to bottom- so you can read the chart however you like!
Colors are never carried more than one stitch as you work keeping your layers together. If you are new to double knitting, definitely do a swatch. Your tension will almost certainly change as you get familiar with the technique.
The pattern chart only shows the knit stitches on the side you're working. There is also a written pattern included if you are not yet comfortable with a chart. Since this is reversible, the Circle Color and the Background Color will switch depending on which side of the scarf you are on.

To get the largest scarf possible:
- Weigh your yarn and write it down.
- Knit one or two pattern repeats for your swatch, weigh your swatch (Figure out the weight in yarn of one full pattern (ie divide by 2 if you knit 2 pattern repeats).
- Divide the weight of your yarn by the weight of 1 pattern repeat to find out how many repeats you can get from your yarn.
- This pattern looks good if you stop at either the end of a full pattern or halfway through on Row 16.
To care for your scarf you can machine wash it on gentle cycle in cool water and lay it flat to dry.
Once you have completed your purchase, your pattern and yarn will be sent by first class post.
More About Double Knitting
You will be doing a knit one, purl one rib which will make pairs of stitches. Your knit stitches are the only stitches that will show on that side of the scarf. Your following purl stitch must always be the opposite color from the knit stitch. The purl stitch will disappear – only showing as a knit stitch on the reverse side.
Be careful to bring both colors forward and back as you switch from knit to purl and back again. The yarn being carried must remain between the two stitches in the pair of stitches or it will look like you tried to do a linen stitch.
