I have included three instructions for a range of knitting experience and


difficult level:
1. An easy version for those who are new to colour-work or who would like
to give it a first try.
2. A slightly more complex variation of the first version using single-rib for
thickness and to prevent any curling.
3. A double-knitting version for those who like an reverse image on the
back which also makes a keyboard, but like a Baroque harpsichord or
organ.
The proportions of this pattern are based on real piano keyboards. If you want
to make a thinner scarf, ignore 15 stitches on the left-hand side of the chart
and 5 stitches at the right-hand edge of the chart.

Repeat rows 1 to 90 another 4


times; 5 times for a longer scarf.
For row 1, knit all stitches in
white.

In row 90 of the last repeat, cast


off. To prevent the scarf curling
up sideways, cast off in
alternative knit and purl
stitches.

Cut the white yarn.

Finishing:

Using long lengths of black yarn,


gently weave the yarn
horizontally between the
stitches in the thick lines on the
chart, i.e. between rows 13 &
14, 25 & 26, 38 & 39, 51 & 52,
64 & 65 and 77 & 78. These
lines are the dividing lines
between the keys and need to
be done on both sides for a solid
line. Make sure to keep them
elastic enough not to pucker the
knitting.

Using the bodkin, weave in all


yarn ends securely amongst
same coloured stitches, making
sure that there are no holes at
the colour changes.

If the scarf rolls up too much,


block it: Wash it gently by hand,
squeeze out excess water (don't
wring it as that may distort the
stitches) and try it stretched out
on thick towels. You can use
pins to fix the scarf on the
towels to get an even stretch.

Finishing:

Using long lengths of black yarn,


gently weave the yarn
horizontally between the
stitches in the thick lines on the
chart, i.e. between rows 13 &
14, 25 & 26, 38 & 39, 51 & 52,
64 & 65 and 77 & 78. These
lines are the dividing lines
between the keys and need to
be done on both sides for a solid
line. Make sure to keep them
elastic enough not to pucker the
knitting.

Using the bodkin, weave in all


yarn ends securely amongst
same coloured stitches, making
sure that there are no holes at
the colour changes.

If the scarf rolls up too much,


block it: Wash it gently by hand,
squeeze out excess water (don't
wring it as that may distort the
stitches) and try it stretched out
on thick towels. You can use
pins to fix the scarf on the
towels to get an even stretch.

Continue the above pattern for 4


repeats (or octaves) for a
medium long scarf and 5
repeats (octaves) for a longer
scarf.

On the final row, bind off all


stitches in black in pairs, i.e.
instead of binding of each stitch
individually, k2tog for each
bind-off.

Cut yarn.

3. Double-Knitting Method:

Take a tail of about 3


yards/metres with the black
yarn and double it up.

With this doubled-up 3


yard/metre length of black yarn,
cast on 35 stitches.

The next row is the first row and


on the right side.

For each stitch cast on, pick out


one loop and knit a stitch in
white and pick out the other
loop of the same stitch and purl
making sure that the yarns run
between the two stitches.

Continue in the same fashion


until the rest of the row. On your
needle you should have
alternating black and white
stitches with the right-most
stitch being white.

Turn your work and make sure


that the yarns are crossed over.

The second row is on the wrong


side and thus the colours are
reversed.

Knit the first stitch in black and


purl the second in white running
the yarns between the two.

Continue following the chart


above.

When you reach a thick


horizontal line (i.e. the
beginning of rows 14, 27, 40,
53, 66, 79 and 1(!!!), run the
yarns on the outside, the black
yarn in front of white stitches,
the white yarn in front of black
stitches. This creates a row of
purl stitches in between the knit
stitches and a thinner black line
to separate the white keys.

Finishing:
Weave in the yarn ends and block.
