Twister – Free Pattern!

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have the pattern for Twister all set to go for you today! This is the perfect travel project or waiting in line project or family gathering project for the upcoming months. It is simple, mindless knitting at its best.

Here is some information you might like to know:


Twister is a long looped scarf with a ribbed edge on one side and a slightly ruffled edge on the other side. The scarf is designed to flip and twist and the edges will roll. It is meant to be this way! Twister can be worn in a variety of ways, wrapped three times up close to your neck, wrapped twice for a long looped look or with one end threaded through the other.

Size: 62 ½-inch circumference

Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 2 skeins in your selected colorway (the sample is in Popsicle #7501)

Needles: 40-inch circular needles, US size 9 or size to obtain gauge

Gauge: 4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

Have fun!

    This is an adorable knit scarf! I have visited your blog before but was drawn back after hearing about Ribbit. It is adorable and immediately went in my Ravelry favorites. You are so generous with your patterns. Thank you!

    After row 4 of ribbing is completed, do you mean to knit in garter stitch for the remainder of the 5 inches when you say “knit” or do you mean stockingette stitch?

      stockinette stitch in the round so knit every round.

        Thanks very much for your prompt answer. I was not knitting in the round because I always get the item twisted! I had forgotten that stockinette stitch is different in the round. Now I can finish the scarf and seam the short ends together.

    I am in the KAL for the Hoodie, and have a question…This is
    my first KAL., and I hate to say it, but wanted to ask a question on the KAL topic, but did not know where to type the question…I am learning…So my question is, I am not doing the hood, and I was wondering where to begin picking up my stitches for the vee, and around the neck…Do I just begin at the bottom of the vee?? I know this is simple, but I just needed a little guideance.. I love Spud and Chloe, and love my hoodie…it looks so very good….Just needed this question answered…Blessings to all…

      Hi Hope,
      I am so glad you joined in! I started picking up my stitches at the bottom of the V on the right side. That means if you are wearing your vest, that right side. I am glad you are doing so well!

    Amitji, good morning from this throbbing, pulsating city YOUR city, Mumbai. Glad you had such a sweet and short experience of the shoot at Pune with Sridevi, one of the most beautiful women and a a tremendous actress, who I feel has not got her just desserts in this industry, in terms of recognition and critical acclaim. I can never ever forget her extraordinary performance in Sadma, one of my all time favorite movies.
