To make the scarf wider at the bottom edge, work more rows over the bottom sts than the upper sts. This is done as follows (1st row = RS and begins from bottom edge): * Work 2 rows over all sts, work until marker, turn, tighten thread and work back, work 4 rows over all sts *, repeat from *-*. I.e. 1 repetition = 6 rows at the top and 8 rows at the bottom.

Work 1 bobble from WS at the end of every 4th row (i.e. along bottom edge of scarf), this is done as follows: Cast on 5 new sts at the end of row, work 4 rows back and forth over these sts, turn, K 6 sts (i.e. the 5 new sts + 1 st on piece), then slip 2nd st on right needle over first st, then 3rd st over first st, 4th st over first st, 5th st over first st and finally 6th st over first st. Now all the 5 bobble sts have been cast off.

Cast on 3 sts on needle size 6 mm with 1 thread Fabel/Flora and 1 thread Kid-Silk.
ROW 1 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 2 (= WS): K 2, 1 YO, K 1, make 1 BOBBLE – see explanation above!
ROW 3 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 4 (= WS): K until 1 st remains, 1 YO, K 1.
ROW 5 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 6 (= WS): K until 1 st remains, 1 YO, K 1, make 1 BOBBLE.
Repeat row 3 to 6 upwards until there are 20 sts on needle (not counting bobbles). Insert a marker in the middle of piece (i.e. 10 sts on each side of marker). Continue with K over all sts, inc and bobbles as before but in addition work SHORT ROWS – see explanation above. When there are 30 sts on needle (not counting bobbles), finish inc but continue short rows. There should still be 1 lace row at the bottom before the bobbles, rows from WS are therefore worked as follows: K until 3 sts remain, K 2 tog, 1 YO and K 1 (in addition make 1 bobble on every 4th row as before).
When piece measures approx. 142 cm at bottom edge (i.e. where bobbles are), beg to dec.
Work rows from WS as follows: K until 4 sts remain, K 3 tog, 1 YO, K 1, make 1 bobble (= 1 st dec). Continue to work until 20 sts remain, short rows are NOT worked any more. Continue with garter st, dec and bobbles as before until 3 sts remain on needle. Loosely cast off. The piece measures approx. 160 cm at bottom edge.
