Our Rick Rack Scarf is far from a snooze. For beginner knitters, it’s a fun challenge, and for more experienced knitters, it keeps you engaged. It also happens to be totally beautiful!
When we first shared this pattern, we knit it up in Jade Sapphire’s 8-Ply Cashmere. Still a gorgeous option, but this time we used our own Worsted Twist, 100% merino wool. Still totally soft and beautiful, Worsted Twist makes a classic Rick Rack Scarf, and in the color Copper Penny, it also makes a rich and complex statement.
In response to popular demand, this pattern is now accompanied by our step-by-step Rick Rack Rib Video Tutorial. It illuminates the little tricks and techniques and makes our Rick Rack Scarf more accessible to more knitters. So, naptime’s over… Time to cast on for our very un-snoozy Rick Rack Scarf! -Whitney
