Riverside Scarf

Riverside is one of Toronto’s most vibrant communities, stretching a distance of ten city blocks along Queen Street East from the Don Valley Bridge to just past Degrassi Street.  This urban hub is well-known for its eclectic vibe, featuring a mix of art galleries, fashion boutiques, and trendy eateries, which dot the landscape like colourful gems between acres of green space and historic buildings.

Inspired by this neighbourhood’s unique streetscape design, a border of blue bricks depicting a winding river, our Riverside Scarf is a lightweight summer accessory, ideal for wearing on relaxed weekends enjoying a picnic in the park, or wandering leisurely through an outdoor festival.

    I do not understand the row after I have done the repeat last row 18 times. WHere is the beginning * and the last *

  2. Jae says:

    The repeat pattern is all the rows between the 1st row (K 1 row) & the Picot Cast off row.

    Repeat Pattern (is 20 rows):
    Beginning:”*Next Row – Cast on 5 sts using backward loop method, cast off 3 sts, k to end. Repeat row 18 (more) times.

    End: “Next Row – Cast on 5 sts using backward loop method, cast off 3 sts, [yo, k2tog] rep to end.*

    Knit the pattern 3 more times 80 rows.

    Overall there are 82 rows:
    Row 1 + 20+20+20+20 + Cast-off

    I also had difficulty in understanding the pattern. I looked at images of the scarf to see the detail which helped. There are only two rows of YO K2tog.

    Marlene, I’ve edited the pattern for clarity. Let me know if this works better.

    Once I saw the scarf in the red blend color displayed, I understood the pattern. Thank you for your help.
