I’ve had this scarf on the docket for Knit the Look, and along came Purl Soho this week with the perfect pattern for recreating it! Photographed on an unidentified fringe lover last February, it’s a generously sized scarf with a slightly-more-interesting-than-ribbing texture. Take Purl Soho’s Mistake Rib Scarf pattern (free pattern) and the recommended quantity of yarn, add fringe at both ends, and you’re good to go. The pattern is written for Purl Soho’s Mulberry Merino, which has a lovely palette, of which the Paprika Red is the closest thing to the scarf in question. If you want something a little more burgundy, try Quince and Co’s Chickadee in Barolo (pictured).
For the head-to-toe look at this outfit, see Vanessa’s original post.

Just landed in NYC this morning! Purl Soho is on my list to visit!! Awesome post, Karen!!
Beautiful! And below the jacket is a big intarsia tunic I would love to see in full.
BIG SCARF BIG FUN
I saw that scarf too and thought the black-green color was the prettiest shade of green ever.
Purl Soho always delivers! I could live in oversized scarves. I recently published a blanket scarf pattern and have taken the sample knit off only when I have to, to sleep, haha.
I knit a great big mistake-stitch scarf as one of my first knitting projects. I made it in baby alpaca and it is the best thing ever on those freezing winter days.
I am learning to do brioche knitting and am making a big scarf. It’s a great way to practice this complicated style of knitting. The green scarf on the left looks like brioche.
