Free Pattern - Warhammer Double Knit Scarf

Well I have finally got round to writing up the pattern for this scarf. It's been a long time coming, but you can now download the PDF pattern here and find it on Ravelry here.

This scarf measures 7 feet 4 inches (88 inches) length by 9.5 inches width, and the double layered double knit fabric mixed with the lusciously soft yarn makes it something to snuggle up in which will keep you warm in the coldest weather. Plus the colours mean that it is perfect for either men or women, the only requirements are a liking for Warhammer. The double headed aquilla logo celebrates the famous models without being too loud or obvious; a great way to subtly show off your geekery.

Yarn used: Rowan DK Cashsoft, Black, 11 skeins
                    Rowan Pure Wool DK, Yellow, 0.5 skeins

Yarn requirements: 1550 - 1650 yards MC, 65 - 100 yards CC

Needles: 3.5mm straight
Gauge: 12 stitches, 17 rows in 2 inches, measured on one side of the double layered fabric only.
This is not a very difficult pattern, though it does take a long time to do, so I would suggest that some knowledge of double knitting is useful.
If you are a beginner at double knitting, I can highly recommend the tutorial and instructions found here:

  1. I like this scarf, and the design you have on it...even if it is warhammer :) Although Im not into warhammer, I like other geeky things.

  2. Nice of you to share the pattern with folks. Thanks for the follow up on the trainers and the jubilee. We call those type of socks, footies. It's fun periodically I come across a word on someone's blog that I'm not sure about, and then chat about it, and learn!

  3. That is such an impressive piece of colorwork! I can't stop looking at it!
