Spin Stitch Scarf & Poncho Pattern

from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas

We first used this traditional Estonian stitch in a scarf pattern for the 2016 LYS Tour. Not lace, but so lace-like! Not cabled, but twisted by ‘spinning’ a cluster of stitches 180°! Delighted with the simple but dramatic results, we couldn’t wait to use this stitch in a bigger way. It’s the perfect twist on our favorite poncho.

========== Not lace, but so lace-like! FINISHED SIZES, BLOCKED Scarf: Small, approx. 10½ x 55"/27 x 140cm. Large, approx. 16½ x 73"/ 42 x 185cm. Poncho: S/M, approx. 22½ x 51"/57 x 130cm.

YARN Approx. 460 (920, 875, 1080) yds/420 (840, 800, 988)m lace-weight or fingering-weight yarn (lace-weight will be more sheer).

Poncho, S/M: Shown in grey Isager Alpaca Merino 2 (270 yds/247m each), Color 4S. Poncho, L/XL: Not shown. NEEDLES & NOTIONS US 8 (5.0mm) needle, or size to obtain gauge. One double-point needle (DPN) 2-3 sizes smaller than gauge needle. Stitch markers, including a locking marker. Darning needle to finish. Approx. 54 (72, 50, 56) fork blocking pins (or twice as many T-pins) for pinning scallops; blocking wires or extra pins for ends. Poncho: 7 (8) small buttons; sewing needle and matching thread.
