Week #4 - Papa Bear Sampler Scarf Knit-along

Each week sees us a little farther along. We're into fall now and this is the last installment of September. We hope you're enjoying this project as much as we are. So little work at one time for such a great pay-off.


This week it's  Plain Diamonds  for us. Just straight knit and purl stitches. Very simple but effective. There are now 46 stitches on the needle. Remember the 5 garter stitch border stitches on each edge.

Row 1 (Right Side):  k4 * p1, k8;  repeat from * to last 5 stitches, p1, k4.
Row 2: p3, * k3, p6; repeat from * to last 6 stitches, k3, p3.
Row 3: k2, * p5, k4; repeat from * to last 7 stitches, p5, k2.
Row 4: p1, * k7, p2; repeat from * to last 8 stitches, k7, p1.
Row 5: purl
Row 6: same as Row 4
Row 7: same as Row 3
Row 8: same as Row 2

Repeat these 8 rows, 4 times and then work Rows 1 - 5, once more. (37 rows)

Here’s the chart:


And here comes the separator:

Knit 5 rows this time increasing 1 stitch (by knitting into the front and back of any stitch) anywhere in the middle of the last row. (47 stitches total)

Week 4 means that we've completed 33% or fully 1/3 of the scarf!
