This pattern is EASY – perfect for a beginning knitter. It requires only 2 types of stitches to create a beautiful woven effect.
If you know how to do only 2 stitches – KNIT & PURL – you can create this scarf.
Winter arrived yesterday when snow began falling in the morning.
The landscape here in western Pennsylvania turned from soggy and rainy, to a carpeting of dazzling white snow.
Perfect weather for beginning a knitting project.With the crazy-busy holidays behind me now, I can get out some gorgeous yarn and a pair of needles and begin to work on something fun.
I found this silky orange yarn in my stash. The bright orange color is stunning.
I am using size 8 needles and worsted weight yarn.
The pattern is a ONE ROW PATTERN.
I adapted this simple pattern a bit so I could do it. You only need to know how to do 2 kinds of stitches – Knit and Purl.
1 skein worsted weight yarn
Size 8 knitting needles
Cast on 26 stitches (if you want to make it wider, add on multiples of 4 stitches. If you want it more narrow, subtract multiples of 4 stitches.)
I cast on 30 stitches for the scarf in my photo.
For each row: K 3, Purl 1.
Repeat this row as many times as you like to get the length of scarf that works best for you.
Yes, it looks like a complicated pattern, but it is EASY to do. It has to be EASY for me – I knit by touch , not by sight.
What do you think?
Do you like this pattern?
I like this pattern because it reminds me of a hand woven fabric which is done on a loom. The texture is very nice to the touch. That is what makes a hand knit scarf so comfortable.
