Scarf Knitting Patterns

These sweet knitted scarf patterns, the Geraldine and Verona, are from a 1915 Fleisher’s Knitting & Crocheting Manual. Not only are they a scarf, but are large enough to use as a nice shoulder shawl.


The Shetland Floss yarn required in the Geraldine Scarf is a light, soft 2-ply yarn or a lace weight. The Highland Wool for the Verona Scarf is probably a worsted 100% wool yarn. Not sure on that one, but the gauge is given so you can experiment with different types of yarn.

Hooks and Needle Size

One of the pages in the manual has a helpful description of the system Fleisher’s used for their hooks and needles. Sometimes it can be hard to meet the right gauge for an old pattern like this. Using this page should help with the sizing of the needles for knitting the scarfs.

The system used in Fleisher’s Knitting and Crocheting Manual is the metric system and the numbers represent the actual diameter of the hooks and needles in millimeters.
