Lady Edith’s Hooded Scarf Pattern is now available for sale! The PDF download can be purchased through my Etsy shop Daydreamer Knits, or my Craftsy shop Daydreamer Knits or Ravelry.com.
Last year, Jennifer Jett from Woolgirl.com asked me to design a hooded scarf for her Downton Abbey Club. It was such fun! I was already a huge fan of the series. I loved imagining what Lady Edith might have worn: elegant and yet, practical. Jennifer offered the pattern in a kit with gorgeous, hand dyed silk/merino yarn plus lots of
amazing treasures including a sample of silk fabric, a Downton Abbey pen and a tiny Lady Edith stitch marker! (I highly recommend her kits!)
Sadly, the kit quickly sold out. But now I am happy to offer the pattern to those interested in knitting it. The scarf requires 440 yards of your favorite worsted yarn and intermediate skills, including cabling, simple shaping and yarnovers. The pattern is fully test knitted and tech edited and I am available if you need help at email@example.com.
Please post your project in Ravely.com! I’d love to see your work 🙂

I’ve never cabled before. Would this be an impossible project then?
Yes, I think so. The leaf motif is a 20 st by 20 row repeat and is provided in both chart form and written form. It may be a bit of a challenge at first, but you will get the hang of it. Please let me know if I can help you further! Happy Knitting!
I have a question about the pattern (just to clarify before I get too far). On the hood portion, where it says to work 8 rows st st and inc 2 sts for total of 50 sts—does that mean to inc on the first of those 8 rows? So that all 8 are 50 sts? And then the next 8 will be 52 sts?
Thanks so much!
Because there is a period after “Work 8 rows in st st.”, you work the 8 rows and then on the 9th row, increase at each end. Then, you repeat these 9 rows, ending with a total of 52 sts. Hope this helps!
