Multidirectional Scarf - 2004

Pattern: Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf
Yarn: 1 skein Mountain Colors 4/8s Wool (250 yard skeins)

In early 2004, I learned how to make a multidirectional scarf -- it's a modular knitting pattern inspired by Iris Schreier's multidirectional triangle scarf. I used the Indian Corn colorway for my first multidirectional scarf and decided to keep it for myself since I frogged and reknit it so many times. I ended up happiest with a thin, long scarf (24 stitches prior to turning on Size 8 Addi Turbos). I'll definitely make another one as I love the 4/8s wool and it's a great 1-skein project. I'm eyeing the Juniper colorway for my next one but Elderberry is cool too.

It's interesting to me that after a solid year of knitting, I'm more choosy about my knitting projects. I'll often knit more than one of something I enjoy; frogging and starting over is not at all painful. It's often a relief! My packed schedule often demands that my projects be simple and portable. Obviously, there's no shortage of things I want to knit, but socks are the most intriguing small knitting project I'm doing and it's what I want to focus on for the next several months (and not just Socktober)!


I've missed you!

What pretty yarn colors.
Both would look great for the scarf.

Such beautiful, vivid colors!

Your scarf is beautiful; you're really talented too

Great job on the scarf! It's stunning.

By the way, I might just need help with the last triangle of the scarf. I keep reading the instructions, and they just aren't making sense to me. I have a ways to go before I'm at that point though; maybe the Tuesday before Thanksgiving I'll make it out to knit?

I really want to make this scarf, and I googled it to see what types of yarns look best with the pattern. You scarf is absolutely beatiful. Thanks for the inspiration.


It's beautiful! Where is the pattern?

Hi Karen, I'm wondering what size needles you used on the multidirectional scarf? Yours is lovely. Sue

Thank you, Sue (even though I'm Janet) - Size 8 (US) or 5mm is what I used for the multidirectional scarf

I'd like to know where to find directions for multidirectional scarf.
