'Saunter'... A New Zealand 4ply Easy Moss Stitch Scarf


This is a free pattern with purchase of the accompanying wool. Please only select 'buy now' if you have also added the relevant wool to your knitting basket.

Moss stitch is a classic combination of 'knit' and 'purl' stitches, which creates a simple yet sophisticated pattern. This cowl is knitted in a beautiful blend of New Zealand Possum and Merino, and the use of slightly bigger needles than those traditionally used for 4ply knitting gives the yarn space to 'breathe', and within a short space of time the Possum rises to the surface giving the cowl a beautiful sheen. 

  • Yarn:One hank of Touch Yarns Possum
  • Needles: 3.75mm
  • Finished size: 22 cm X 155 cm approx.

Note: We originally knitted this scarf with Amuri 4ply. However this yarn has since been discontinued. We strongly recommend using this beautifully soft New Zealand Touch Yarns Possum as a substitute. We have used Natural and Duck Egg for our samples. You will use all of one hank to complete your scarf..
