Faux bois by Adrian Bizilia


Faux Bois Twisted traveling stitches in stranded color work. Scarf is knit in the round, steeked, and finished with applied fabric lining.

$7.00 US


Finished measurements: Mittens – 10 ¼” / 26 cm from edge to tip and 8” / 20.5 cm around; Scarf - 8”x 69” / 20.5 x 175 cm

Yarn: Harrisville New England Knitters Highland (100% Wool; 200 yds/183 m per 3.5 oz / 100g skein); Mittens - 1 skein each of colors #8 Hemlock (CC) and #37 Cocoa (MC); Scarf - 1 skein color #8 Hemlock (CC) and 2 skeins #37 Cocoa (MC)

Note on yarn quantity: If knitting only the scarf, you may want to purchase an extra skein of the CC, as it will be very close with only 1 skein. If you’re knitting both projects, you will have plenty of yarn if you purchase the quantity listed, as the mittens used far less of the CC.
