Lune is a knitting pattern for a striped, crescent scarf. It’s worked in garter stitch, and has a narrow crochet border. Lune is unisex, and entirely beginner-friendly. Lune can be modded in size to work as a scarf or a shawl.
I didn’t really plan for Lune to happen. After working on The Lovelace Gloves, I wanted to knit something very simple on large needles. In a way, Lune was a comfort-knit. As rewarding it is to create something very intricate, a fast-paced project that requires very little concentration is just and only pure fun.
For me, Lune was fun to knit. The feel of the yarns was nice and fluffy, large needles made the project come together in very little time, and not having to purl or read a chart was relaxing for a change.
Lune was born on a whim. I went through my stash, and found two balls of mystery yarn in black and green. The color-combo brought Loki to my mind. I immediately knew I wanted to use the yarns on scarf, as long as possible, and easy to mix and match.
The shape of the scarf was also quickly decided. I wanted to find the easiest possible way to create a crescent scarf in order to make the pattern as beginner-friendly as possible.
I set to work, and decided Lune needed a little something-something to make it special.
Garter stitch stays flat without ribbed edges. It’s ideal for scarfs and shawls: it looks nice, has a lot of elasticity, and stays put on its own. I chose to finish Lune with a narrow crochet edge not for practical reasons, but to give it a unique look.
Working on Lune was an absolute pleasure. I enjoyed every moment of it so much I’m actually thinking about casting on another one in black and purple.
I hope you’ll love The Lune Knitting Pattern, too!
Until next time.
