Knit in linen yarn, Cuentas is an easy breezy summer scarflette. It can just as easily be knit in handspun, cashmere, or hand-dyed yarn… the beauty of Cuentas is its adaptability!

Cuentas Scarf (or Cuentas Collar) was originally May '24 Lola's Choice kit. There are now kits in EIGHT COLORS! Find them HERE!

The Cuentas Scarf pattern includes an exclusive detailed video tutorial, that is linked in the pdf.

Cuentas begins by casting on at one tip and working to the other end with strategically placed increases and decreases that create chevron shaping. Optional beads are embedded in the stockinette stitch sections to give a shot of bling. Plus, the length of Cuentas is easy to adjust and the pattern is written for you to get the most out of your yarn.
