The Traveling Scarf is my favorite of the Traveling Woman Collection. It includes instructions for a scarf in fingering weight and a stole in worsted weight. Don’t be afraid to branch out, though. I’ve included tables for additional yarn weights and sizes. The pattern uses two different methods of construction: (1) requires a scale and one provisional cast on; (2) requires two provisional cast ons and grafting, but does not need a scale. Both methods work for any yarn weight and FO size and are designed to maximize your yardage.
The Traveling Scarf pattern is part of the Traveling Woman Collection. You can purchase the pattern individually for $6, or as a part of the collection for $20.
Patterns sold by Ravelry and payment is processed by Paypal. You do not need an account for either service.
Available in two sizes with complete instructions and photos.
Fingering weight, long scarf
Little Red Bicycle Hipster Sock (shown in Leonidas), 1 skein
Finished size: 7″ wide, 79″ long
Worsted weight, long stole
Madelinetosh tosh vintage (shown in Kale), 3 skeins

The pattern provides tables for additional sizes. The information is provided in a table, so you can fill-in-the-blank and easily knit the custom size of your choice. I recommend that custom sizes be knit using the grafting method. Additional sizing provided includes:
- Scarf: lace, DK, sport, worsted, aran, and bulky
- Stole: lace, fingering, DK, sport, aran, and bulky
The pattern includes both written instructions and charted instructions. Instructions are given to use every single last yard of your yarn. You have two options for knitting the pattern, one of which requires grafting (the other doesn’t).
– Custom sizing formula
- Working the entire body in lace (two lace options)
- Preventing edge flaring
- Preventing curling in narrower scarves
