Another Simple Scarf Knitted With The Seed Stitch Pattern

The winter is not over yet. Can you believe what mother nature is doing to us?
Well, I finally worked on writing this free pattern for anyone that would like to knit scarf with seed stitch. (Also see video mentioned at the end of this post).
So, if you know how to cast on, make a knit stitch, make a purl stitch and bind of, you can knit this scarf - either for yourself or as a gift for someone. I knitted this scarf in a couple of hours, so if you are a patient knitter you could have it finished in one or two days.
Enjoy and keep warm in this arctic air.


  • Yarn – any yarn/wool of your desire
  • Needles - either long; or if your scarf will be knitted with 23 sts (or less) you can use two double pointed needles (DPN) if that is comfortable for you - also use size recommended by a yarn manufacturer 
  • Scissors 
  • Tapestry needle or hook for weaving in ends/tails if you won't be attaching tassels 

DPN – double pointed needles
CO – cast on
K – knit
KTBL - knit through the back loop
st, sts - stitch, stitchess
sl last st – slip last stitch (= move it from left needle onto right needle without knitting - with yarn moved to the front from the back)
BO – bind off


2in x 2in = varies (it depends on the thickness of the yarn)

Step-by-step instructions: 

Row 1           CO 23 sts
Row 2 - ?      KTBL, *[K1 P1]* - repeat from * to *, sl last st

Repeat Row 2 as many times as you need to - to reach desired length (my white scarf is approximately 160 inches long).  Then BO last row. Either clean up the loose ends (tails) or attach tassels.
