Molly’s striped scarf is lovely, and makes a statement, but it’s just not practical for solving crimes!
Those long tails dragging in the forensic materials, getting stuck in drawers & doors, it could drive a pathologist crazy.
Here’s an idea; how about the same beautiful stripes, but worked as an easy-to-wear cowl that doubles as a hood on those chilly London evenings?
“Because the one person he thought didn’t matter at all to me ended up mattering most of all.”

“I hope you’ll be very happy [with your] Molly Hooper, you deserve it.”
Reminiscent of a golden sunset, orange red highlighted with deep pinks are mixed with creamy undertones.
Bright blue and stark scarlet streaks on a deep purple base create a dramatic and beautiful fabric.
Yellows and reds marry with shades of orange in a strong, blocky colorway with a rich life of it’s own.
Sometimes Pink & Black play nice, like on a Chanel box, but in this colorway they’ve met in a dark alley and are halfway through a rip roaring night on the town. And they might not be home for breakfast.
Strong red & pink tones on light orange base with a touch of yellow, hot – like the planet for which it was named!
A strong blue with overtones of blue/black make this an unforgettable colorway.
A mix of strong green and mid blue tones on an aqua base floats over touches of warm yellow.
Deep, rich, strong red, so full of life you can almost taste it!
A warm olive green with yellow and black overtones, excellent as a neutral or for traditional male garments.
Not just black, but a combination of colors overdyed with the darkest grey to create layers of black with unusual glints of lighter grey.
Rich orange and subtle pink tones blend onto a yellow base make a color with a bit more life than the average orange blend.
An all over yellow-green with hints of warmer yellow and deep black to liven the coolness.
Touches of warm yellow on a dark yellow base, a lovely contrast when used with more active colorways.
A creamy, deep white with warmth in the light and coolness when paired with a darker color. This is the definitive neutral, a necessity!
A Study In Pink references the myriad shades of the victim’s coat, shoes, suitcase and – most important – cell phone, blended in a vibrant, snappy colorway which would work magnificently with any neutral, or with an equally sizzling tones!
Everybody into the pool? I have to struggle to keep all of my colorways from being different shades of blue, I love the color so much! What I particularly love about THIS blue colorway, Bristol South Pool, is that it’s so changeable.

Casting On & Binding Off
If you prefer not to work a provisional cast on and 3-needle bind off, an alternative is to cast on using any method and bind off using a traditional BO, then sew the edges together with a mattress stitch (this may seem easier, but the join will not be as nice as joining live sts with a 3-needle bind off.)
“Annie’s Slip Stitch Edging”
The technique used in this pattern is a beautiful way to self-finish an edge. Once you learn it, you will use it all the time! It should be worked relatively loosely so it doesn’t draw up the edge. It’s important to remember when working this edging that every time a stitch is slipped, the yarn should be held TOWARD the knitter (whether you’re working on the RS or the WS of the work).
Special Stitches & Techniques
Provisional Cast On
This is a term used to describe a cast on which can be easily removed later, leaving a row of live stitches to be slipped onto a needle and worked. One favorite method is to crochet a chain in waste yarn with at least as many sts as you would like to cast on. Tie off the end of the chain, placing a knot in the tail. Slip your knitting needle into the bump at the back of each chain, creating one cast on “stitch” on the needle for each bump. Later the chain can be loosened at the knotted end and removed, leaving live sts.

3 Needle Bind Off
- Place the two pieces on knitting needles so the right sides of each piece are facing each other with the needles parallel.
- Insert a third needle one size larger through the leading edge of the first stitch on each needle (knitwise)
- Knit these stitches together as one, leaving 1 st on RH needle.
- Repeat steps 2 & 3 and slip older stitch on RH needle over newer stitch.Repeat step 4 until all sts are bound off. Cut yarn, pull through last stitch.
