A Very Simple Scarf For Beginners >>> Velmi Jednoducha Sala Pro Zacatecniky

This scarf is very simple to knit and perfect for beginners that know how to cast on, make a knit stitch, purl stitch and bind off. The pattern looks complex, but still easy to knit. If you are starting to learn how to knit, I would recommend knitting a scarf with knit stitch only (see other scarf links below). Enjoy.


Material:

  • Yarn: Lion Brand, Vanna's Choice (or any worsted good quality yarn/wool) - 2-3 skeins depending on desired length
  • Knitting Needles -  US size 8 (I used DPN, you can use also regular long knitting needles)


Step-by-Step:

Row 1:          CO 21 stitches
Rows 2-7:      K 20, (with yarn in front of your knit) slip last stitch from your left needle onto your right needle (NOTE: this pattern stitch is called a garter stitch)
Rows 8-17:   K, * [K, P] - repeat from * until last two stitches, then K1, (with yarn in front of your knit) slip last stitch  from your left needle onto your right needle (NOTE: this pattern stitch is called a moss stitch)

After that alternate Rows 2-7 and Rows 8-18 as many times as you wish, that means to your desired length. Finish with rows 2-7 and BO (use knit stitch BO). If you like fringe add some fringe.

CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO "HOW TO KNIT THIS SCARF".  Be aware you NEED 2 KNOW how to do: KNIT stitch, PURL stitch, Cast On, and Bind Off. This video will NOT teach you how to knit.

Also if you'd like to knit even more simple scarf using only knit stitch click on THIS LINK or using a seed stitch pattern (alternating knit and purl stitches) click on THIS LINK. Both are free written patterns, including links to videos.

I just had a request for 2 inch wider scarf. These 2 inches amount to 8 extra stitches. So below are step-by-step instructions for 7 inch wide scarf: 

Row 1:  CO 29 stitches
Rows 2-7:  K 28, (with yarn in front of your knit) slip last stitch from your left needle onto your right needle (NOTE: this stitch is called garter stitch)
Rows 8-17:   K, * [K, P] - repeat from * until last two stitches, then K1, (with yarn in front of your knit) slip last stitch  from your left needle onto your right needle (NOTE: this stitch is called moss stitch)

After that alternate Rows 2-7 and Rows 8-17 as many times as you wish, that means to your desired length. Finish with rows 2-7 and BO  (use knit stitch BO). If you like, add some fringe.
