Fetching Fern


Fetching Fern is a unisex DK-weight neckwarmer featuring a split hem and a fern-like diagonal texture stitch pattern.

I used just 1 skein of the lovely Lucia DK by Boston hand-dyer Dirty Water Dyeworks (shown in the Vermont colorway). The stitch pattern features just knits and purls and creates an attractive, subtle diagonal texture.

*Achieving stitch gauge is more important than row gauge. Exact gauge is not critical but it will affect your finished measurement and yarn usage.

Needles & Other Supplies:

  • US 6/4 mm 24”/60 cm circ, or size needed to obtain gauge.
  • US 5/3.75 mm 16”/40 cm circ, or 1 needle size smaller than that used to get gauge.
  • Stitch marker.
  • Tapestry needle to weave in ends.

Finished Measurements (after blocking):

  • Circumference: 22.5”/57 cm
  • Height from top to front hem: 7.5”/19 cm
