Mullein is a long rectangular scarf featuring a gorgeous array of patterns and geometry. This project uses short rows in stripes, mixed with openwork lace and bobbles to create a wonderful project for the advanced beginner who would like to practice more advanced techniques or anyone wanting to add a statement scarf to their collection.

Mullein is the eighth pattern from The Almanac Series and is also available as a kit in either Amble, Canopy Fingering or Cumbria Fingering.


This project is a fun way to work with colour—clashing brights, subtle neutrals, pretty pastels—whatever your preferred combination, this is a beautiful project to express yourself in colour.

The Pattern

Whichever yarn you choose, Mullein is an excellent project for learning something new: crack the code for lace, or perfect your short row technique!

This long rectangular scarf is knit in 4 different pattern sections making it an exciting project to get stuck into. Section A is a Lace Diamond Stitch, Sections B & D are short rows in the striped section, so your knitting seems to grow quickly to create a different look and hold your interest and  Section C is the Bead stitch and striped section. 

With a wealth of techniques featured will never get bored knitting this!

The Almanac Series

Mullein is the eighth pattern from The Almanac Series.

Based on the original farmer’s Almanac guide to the seasons, this collection acts as a guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. and celebrates each month of the year by giving knitters the chance to sample our Yarn of the Month, with a new design launch.

This year’s Almanac Series has a theme of herbalism to recognise the importance and heightened appreciation of maintaining health in these times.

In the second half of our first Almanac series collection, we embrace the Spring Summer season, where each month’s yarn has been specifically chosen for its qualities to compliment colder conditions. February is the month of Cirro, March is Acadia, April is Canopy Fingering, May is Luma, June is Amble and July is Meadow.
