The Boyfriend Scarf

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Organic Wool


SETT: 8 per in. (cm) (Sett is the spacing of warp ends in the heddle)
PICKS: 7 per in. (cm) (Picks are the woven weft yarns)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


1. When changing colors, always pass the shuttle under the previous weft to create a neat edge.
2. When weaving the weft, begin weaving with A on the left side of the loom and begin weaving with B on the right side of the loom.
3. Scrap yarn is used for weaving a header.

Following the loom instruction booklet, warp your loom with 44 lengths of A and 21 lengths of B, each 85 in. (216 cm) long.
Begin with 2 lengths of A, then alternate 1 length of B with 2 lengths of A until all lengths have been threaded, warps should be centered on loom.

Wind scrap yarn onto a shuttle.
With scrap yarn, and following instruction booklet, weave for about 1 in. (2.5 cm) to make header and to spread warp out evenly.
Cut scrap yarn, leaving a 3 in. (7.5 cm) yarn tail.
Remove remaining scrap yarn from shuttle. Wind one shuttle with A and one with B.
Rows 1 and 2: With A, pass the shuttle across twice to make 2 picks.
Row 3: With B, pass the shuttle across once to make 1 pick.
Repeat Rows 1-3, until piece measures about 70 in. (178 cm) from beginning, ending with 2 rows of A.

Following instruction booklet, remove piece from loom. Remove the scrap yarn in the header.
Working along one end of Scarf, gather first 6 strands into 2 groups of 3 strands each. Holding 3 strands in each hand, twist each group of 3 strands clockwise (to the right), until the strands begin to kink. Hold both twisted groups in same hand and allow groups to twist together in a counterclockwise direction (to the left). Knot strands about 2 in. (5 cm) from end of Scarf.
Repeat to make fringes along both ends of Scarf.
Trim fringe ends evenly.
