false creek
deliciously chunky lace button scarf

False Creek is an inlet at the heart of Vancouver. It is ringed by the Seawall: a path and park system which celebrates the city's proximity to the water. Ice cream, dog walking, sun bathing, and a farmers market only a short walk from your apartment: this is part of why Vancouver is consistently voted one of the most liveable cities in the world.

If you are a new knitter, or in need of a quick project this zippy little button scarf is an opportunity to learn about reading charts and working very basic lace stitches. In a super-bulky yarn False Creek works up quickly, making a perfect gift.


9 inches tall by 26 inches long
One size fits all; but if you knit this bulky bad-boy in a slightly thicker or thinner yarn, or with slightly bigger or smaller needles, the finished size will vary.

materials 90 yds super bulky weight yarn (8-10 sts/4")
(we used Malabrigo Rasta in '63-natural')
we suggest a super-bulky, but the scarf may also be knit using worsted or aran weight held double or triple
gauge 9 sts / 4" (in stockinette stitch)
suggested needles US #15 / 10 mm
(or as required to meet gauge)
notes The cowl is knit from end to end. A garter stitch border surrounds the textured lace pattern. The lace pattern is described BOTH in a chart and in written instructions.

The false creek cowl pattern is available as an individual pattern download, or as part of the Pacific Knits collection.
