AHHH! I’m super jazzed to tell you that I’m launching my first ever knitting machine pattern! SO FRICKEN EXCITED. I purchased a Sentro Knitting Machine back in January 2022 and since then my world has opened up in term of knitting.
I’m well aware it’s not the same thing as hand knitting. Don’t come at me. People get real cranky about knitting machines and I think they need to all calm down and find something else to be upset about. While I’m not doing the actual knitting portion of it, I’m 100% doing the creation and development of it. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Knitting machine-made items are handmade and I will die on this hill. Anywho. The pattern. It’s awesome.
It is a cuffed scarf. Meaning if you’re like me and terrible at wearing scarves because you don’t really know how to tie them and make them look cute…I’ve got you. This scarf has a loop / cuff that lets you slide the one end into it and wear it around your neck with ease. It’s THE CUTEST!
I do not provide any tutorials for knitting machine basics in this pattern. Techniques you’ll need to know includes:
- casting on
- casting off
- changing colors
- closing tubes (cinched + straight edge)
- using waste yarn
One of my favorite parts of this pattern I’ve whipped up is all of the handholding that I do provide! I’ve created both written (row by row, pin color change by pin color change) AND graph versions of charts. You can print them off and use them as checklists while you’re knitting.
I used four yarn colors, all with the JoAnn Fabrics line of yarns called 'Big Twist Value'. It’s an acrylic yarn that is pretty soft and has a wide variety of colors. I’ve converted to this brand for most of my crochet projects because I have a JoAnn Fabrics local to me, and they always have these yarns in stock. Consistency is key, am I right?
The colors I used for this scarf is: Varsity Green, Varsity Gold, Heather Grey and Varsity Red.
I truly am so excited to see what you’re able to do with this tutorial that I’m sharing!
Pretty please with sugar on top share with me if you end up making something for yourself! I’d die to see your work!
Don’t forget to tag me #wildandwanderfulblog (I’m @wildandwanderfulblog on Instagram). The idea of seeing something you’ve created from a tutorial I shared gives me ALL THE FEELS. Don’t leave me hanging!
