This is a printed pattern in Swedish.

Asta - a simple scarf in patent knitting (Brioche) with fine edges. A good pattern to try and practice the technique.
Excellent opportunity to use leftover yarn, for each stripe you need about 5 grams of silk mohair.

SIZE: About 21 x 222 cm (each stripe measures about 13 cm).

MESH DENSITY: 20 stitches & 38 rows (19 visible patent rows) = 10 cm in patent knitting with yarn A and B.
The stitch density is not critical in this project, but different stitch density will affect both the yarn consumption and the finished scarf's measurements.

YARN: Asta is knitted throughout with two threads – a thread of thin wool yarn that follows all the way (yarn A) and a thread of silk mohair that is replaced at regular intervals and forms stripes (yarn B1–B5). Detailed info on yarn consumption can be found below.

SPLINTERS: 4 mm circular needle (any length) or jumper needles.

ACCESSORIES: Darning needle.

Yarn A:
Alternative 1: Isager Alpaca 2 (50% wool, 50% alpaca), 250m/50g, color 0, white: 3 skeins (approx. 130g).
Alt: 2: Sandnes Sunday (100% merino wool), 235m/50g, color 1015, kit: 3 skeins (approx. 140g).
