Anemone Coat Check Scarf Knitting Pattern



In the winter, what do you do with your accessories when you go somewhere? You may stuff them in the sleeve or pocket of your coat, and cross your fingers that they won’t fall out. I have always been greatly concerned about losing my accessories because of the amount of time I put into knitting them. This concern gave me the idea of the coat check scarf – a scarf that you can put your gloves into to keep them safe while your coat is on a hanger.


This is the time I've decided to sell a knitting pattern. You can purchase it for $2.50 through Ravelry.




Fit your mittens inside the scarf, button it up and it fits on a hanger beautifully!

Materials

  • 3 – 50g balls of DK weight wool (Capra Cashmere Yarn in Admiral)
  • Size 6 (4.00mm), 16" circular knitting needles
  • Yarn needle (for weaving in loose ends)
  • 3 buttons
  • 3 snap fasteners
  • Sewing needle and thread (in appropriate color) for attaching buttons and snaps.

I created a video that will help with the Anemones Bobble Stitch (Stitch Reference - Good Housekeeping Traditional Knitting):



Don't worry, I will continue to design and publish more free knitting patterns here at ChemKnits!

  1. If I were to do this pattern on straight needles, how would it need to be adjusted?
    Thanks

  2. The pattern is written in the round. To adjust it to straight needles, you would have to take one of the bobble rounds and switch the knits to purls. I would personally take round 1 and purl with double wraps, and then proceed with round two as directed. then at the end, you will have to sew a seam.

  4. So if knitting on straight needles the pattern would look like this?:

    Row 1: purl 1 with double wrap all across
    Row 2: as shown in the video
    Row 3: knit 1 with double wrap all across
    Row 4: as row 2

    Am I right? A little confused for sure ;)

    1. Close. Rows 1 and 3 would both be Purl based, so on Row 3 you would purl with double warps across.

    1. And the same when knitting in the round? Looks like you do it offset though.

    2. Yes. In the round every other row will have stitches offset to allow the bobbles to stack.
