Miller Maiden’s Scarf

The Miller Maiden’s Scarf is knitted in two parts from the bottom up and grafted at the center. Afterwards, stitches are picked up from the provisional cast on for the crochet chain edging. The pattern assumes that you know how to cast on provisionally, read charts, knit nupps, and graft (Kitchener stitch).

Because of the very short lace repeat (2 rows), the scarf can be easily lengthened or shortened.

The scarf’s name is inspired by “Mit dem grünen Lautenband” from Franz Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin song cycle.

This pattern has been test-knitted.
