SOQUCO scarf

(Knit)

Soft, Quick, Cozy”, also known as Soquco.  This is the name of a knit scarf/shawlette I found the pattern in Raverly, and I am so glad I did.  It is truly quick to make, and cozy to wear…
“Suave, Rápido, Cómodo”, conocido como Soquco (por sus siglas en inglés: soft, quick, cozy).









The pattern calls for 2 strands of light yarn, preferably merino, angora or alpaca, because of their lightness.  I actually did use just one strand of angora* [* 40% angora goat hair; 60 % acrylic], for the simple reason that we have mild winters where I live.  The shape of the scarf is an elongated triangle.  One starts knitting at the front tip, with increases on every row and every side.  When changing colors, the stripes come out horizontal (the opposite of the Baktus scarf). The original pattern is larger, which can be used as a shawl, but I made it smaller, as a scarf.  I am already planning to knit more of these…

En el patrón original se usan dos lanas livianas juntas, tales como merino, angora o alpaca.  Sin embargo, yo decidí usar sólo una lana angora (ya que nuestros inviernos son leves).  Esta bufanda tiene una forma de triángulo alargado, y se comienza a tejer en la parte inferior, y se va incrementando en cada pasada de ambos lados.  Al cambiar de color, las franjas salen horizontales (lo opuesto al Baktus).  El patrón original es para un chal, pero yo lo hice un poco más pequeño, como bufanda.  Ya estoy planeando hacer más de estas lindas bufandas…
