Colorful Miters Scarf

Lion Brand® Bonbons®


20 sts + 40 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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


Cable Cast On

Transfer needle with sts to left hand. With empty needle in right hand, *insert right needle between first 2 sts on left needle; wrap yarn and pull through (as if knitting a st); transfer new st to left needle. Repeat from * for desired number of sts.


1. A strip of mitered squares is worked first, then sts are picked up across one long edge to work stripes.
2. The Squares are added in a modular fashion; sts are picked up across the edge of the previous Square to beg the next Square.
3. Each Square is worked back and forth in rows with decreases worked in the center of every other row to form a miter. 4. Work Squares in colors of your choice.
5. To change color, cut the old color leaving a long yarn tail then beg working with new color leaving a beg yarn tail. You may knot the old and new yarn tails together, if desired. When you have finished knitting, unknot the yarn tails and weave them in.

Square 1

With color of your choice, cast on 23 sts.
Row 1 (RS): Knit.
Row 2: K10, k3tog, k10 - 21 sts.
Row 3 and all WS rows: Knit.
Row 4: K9, k3tog, k9 - 19 sts.
Row 6: K8, k3tog, k8 - 17 sts.
Row 8: K7, k3tog, k7 - 15 sts.
Row 10:K6, k3tog, k6 - 13 sts.
Row 12: K5, k3tog, k5 - 11 sts.
Row 14: K4, k3tog, k4 - 9 sts.
Row 16: K3, k3tog, k3 - 7 sts.
Row 18: K2, k3tog, k2 - 5 sts.
Row 20: K1, k3tog, k1 - 3 sts.
Row 21 (RS): K3tog - 1 st.
Fasten off.
Note: With RS of Square facing, Row 1 forms the left side and lower edge of the Square.

Squares 2-28
From RS of previous Square, with color of your choice, pick up and k12 sts evenly spaced across top edge of previous Square, using Cable Cast On technique, cast on 11 sts as follows: transfer needle with sts to left hand. With empty needle in right hand, *insert right needle between first 2 sts on left needle; wrap yarn and pull through (as if knitting a st); transfer new st to left needle. Repeat from * to cast on 11 sts - 23 sts.
Rows 1-21: Work same as Rows 1-21 of Square 1.
Fasten off.

Side Stripes
Work one stripe in each of the 8 colors, in any order desired.
From RS, pick up and k336 sts evenly spaced across one long edge of Scarf.
Knit 3 rows.
*Change to next color and knit 4 rows; rep from * 6 more times for a total of 8 stripes. Bind off.

Tie a Pom to each corner of Scarf. Weave in ends.
