With lightweight fabric and eyelet edges, this Asymmetrical Knit Scarf is equally at home running errands in jeans, or dressing up for a party. Wrap it for warmth, or for more dramatic flair, wear it draped over your shoulders with the long, tapered ends hanging down at the back. You can even hang a small charm from the picot at the center!

Designed by Request
Several of you loved my Norwood Park pattern and asked for this knit version. Edison Park features the same, asymmetrical, V shape. It uses a lighter weight yarn, but the dense garter stitch makes it just as cozy.
Beginner Friendly Design
It may look more complex, but this garter stitch design is mainly just knit stitches! Basic decreases and yarn overs give it the asymmetrical shape. If you can knit, you can make this scarf!
Candy Skein Yarn
I made this asymmetrical knit scarf with 1 skein of Candy Skein Fingering Weight yarn, which I received for free from Global Backyard Industries for this design. The merino and nylon blend is lightweight, while still being remarkably warm. The speckled colorway adds visual depth and dimension for a rich textural look.
- Yarn: 1 skein (463 yds) Candy Skein Yummy Fingering yarn, Silver Spoon color
- Needles: Size 2.5 / 3 mm knitting needles, or size needed to obtain gauge
- Notions: Yarn needle
Easy – mostly garter stitch, with basic decreases and yarn overs, plus one picot.
22 sts x 40 rows = 4″ in garter stitch, after blocking. Exact gauge is not critical but will affect the amount of yarn needed.
k = knit
p = purl
yo = yarn over
k2tog = knit 2 together

Special Stitch – Picot
Cast on 2 stitches, using the knitted cast on. Bind off two stitches: K 1, (k 1, pass previous st over) twice. This creates a small, decorative loop.
