Feel the soft caress of Toco, a cosy and warm loop scarf with a luxurious texture. Connie Peng has designed it with great discernment for our new Lovely Merino Treat. The two different stitch patterns guarantee an interesting, but easy knit. Our fresh colour Blackberry Sorbet emphasizes the playful air of this simple texture reminiscent of cables, and contrasting beautifully with the modern open ribbed stitches. Its sophisticated, yet casual look makes Toco so versatile. Wear it long and loosely or wrapped around your neck twice for even more comfort and warmth, adapting the width easily to your preferences.

With an easy to follow chart, Toco is the perfect small project knit that will grow quickly. The pattern is written with the option of two sizes, a narrow depth version with a longer length and a wider depth version with a shorter length. The scarf is knitted flat in one piece starting with a provisional cast-on and joined to form a loop with a sophisticated grafting method aided by an included tutorial video link.

The narrow version of the loop scarf has a length (full circumference) of 147 cm (58 in) and a width of 26 cm (10.25 in) (topmost photo); the wider version has a length (full circumference) of 131 cm (51.5 in) and a width of 37 cm (14.5 in) (all other photos).

You need 3 skeins of Lovely Merino Treat (223 g for the narrow version and 281 g for the wider one). The indicated yarn quantities apply according to the gauge. The garment in the images is knitted with the colour Blackberry Sorbet.

Needles: 3.5 mm (US 4) circular needle. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Toco was designed for our 2021 collection, to which Rosy gave the theme of touch. This year, we have all become particularly aware of the importance of interpersonal closeness and touch. More and more, however, it is also becoming clear that we belong together worldwide and that what happens on the other side of the globe also touches us. The names of our patterns express this in different languages. Toco means I touch in Spanish.
