A modern twist on one of knitting’s most traditional and well-loved styles – the Shetland tube scarf. Worked circularly throughout at a relaxed gauge, the double-layer of stranded fabric creates a lusciously soft and pliable garment.

Finished Colorwork Gauge:
25 stitches and 28 rounds = 4” in circular stranded colorwork with Needle A; after blocking
NEEDLES Size A (Colorwork Gauge Needle):
One 16” circular needle (or longer, if using the Magic Loop method) in size needed to obtain gauge listed above
Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)
One 16” circular needle (or longer, if using the Magic Loop method) in size needed to match colorwork stitch gauge listed when working single-color stockinette stitch (row gauge will vary)
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)
Due to significant variance from knitter to knitter, your colorwork fabric should be swatched prior to knitting to decide whether or not Needle B is larger, smaller or equal to Needle A.
