Knitting instructions for cute children's scarf


Stroke: 21 sts with Yarn A and Nd No. 4.5.

Increases for the Schäfchen bag:

Row 1: Row M Row 2: 1 sts, 1 sts in stocking st (out 1 st 2 sts out), row st to row ends = 22 sts. Row 3-10: 1 sts, 1 sts row ( from 1 st 2 sts out, rep st to R-end = 30 sts row 11: 1 sts, row sts to row ends, row 12: 1 sts, row sts to row ends. Rows 11-12 wdh until the scarf measures 120 cm from the stop edge. (The length of the scarf can be easily varied, but simply rows 11-12 or less often str.)

Decreases for the monochrome pocket next series:

Knit 2 sts in stockist st, K 1 st = 29 sts. Repeat row 8 times = 21 sts all sts.


Both pockets are knitted from the later upper edge. Use a drawstring stopper (see p. 180) to create a sturdy edge. First knit the bag with the head of the lamb - and adjust the size of the second bag to this bag. This is important if the Thread tension when knitting the intarsia pattern varies and the bag thus becomes longer or shorter. Because the black area (head), which is knitted smooth right, can be slightly longer than the cream-colored background, which is knitted on the right.

Sheep bag:

Stroke: 30 sts with yarn A and nd No. 4 in the cord stropper. Row 1: * 1 st, 1 stl, from * wdh to R-end. Swap row 1 3 more times, and then change to nd and the bag in the intarsia technique according to the counting pattern on the next page str. The characters in the counting pattern show you exactly which M you need to knit and when the color is changed: Row 1: Re M str with yarn A. Row 2: 1 M off, R M to R end with yarn A.

Continue according to the counting pattern str. When changing the thread, cross the threads on the left side of the bag so that you do not get caught in the pockets later. When changing the yarn between a re and a li M, the work thread is between the Nd on the side facing you. Put the working thread over the thread for the left side of the thread, sew the thread for the left side and continue to sew. When changing the yarn between a left and right hand, place the yarn for the left over the work thread, put the work thread back between the hands and knit the right stitch.

The eyes can be knit in the intarsia technique, but you can also carry and swap tense threads in black behind the M in white yarn, as in a fair isle pattern. Row 31: 1 sts, according to count patterns up to the last 3 Work st, K 2 tog, K 1 = K2, repeat row 8 times, stocking sts and changing colors as per count sts = 21 sts. Row 40-41: Knit M with Yarn A. Cast off all sts,

Monochrome bag:

Stroke: 30 sts with yarn A and nd No. 4 in the cord stop. Row 1: * 1 st, 1 st, from * wdh to the R end. Row 1 still 3 × wdh.Zu Nd Nr. 4, 5 change row 5: 1 M abh, re M to R-end. 41. Repeat row 47 to the last 3 sts, K 2 sts, 1 st = 29 sts. Row 8 more times = 21 sts. Row 56: Re M str. Row 57: Re M str.All M abk.

Ears (knit 2 times): Stroke: 10 sts with yarn A and needle number 4. Row 1: 1 sts, from 1 st 2 mm garter st, st M to R-end. Row 2: Re M sts. Rows 1-2 still 2 × Wdh = 13 sts. Row 7: Row M row 8: Row M row 9: 1 sts, 2 sts back, row M to row end. Row 10: Re-work 9-10 times 2 times = 10 sts. Cast off all sts.


Long cut the thread ends and sew on the left side of the bag. Embroider the pupils and the mouth and sew the buttons for the nostrils. Thread a piece of black yarn through the embroidery needle, pull it through the side edge of one ear and tighten the thread. Repeat for the other short side edge. This is how you get two plastic ears. Stitch them with the short side of the head of the sheep.

Carefully tension the scarf and pockets, making sure that both pockets are the same size and that the pockets fit the appropriate ends of the scarf. Do not flatten your ears! Place the bag with the little sheep on the matching end of the shawl - the rows lie exactly one above the other - and sew on. When sewing together, use the thread ends of the stop edge to avoid sewn them up.

Finally, sew the monochrome bag on the other end of the shawl.
