Reversible Knitted Holiday Scarf

I love patterns for scarves that are reversible, because they look beautiful on both sides. The pattern that I am sharing with you today is just that - same on both sides. On top of being identical on both sides, it is also very easy to knit. It is perfect even for advanced (or talented) beginners. All you need to know is how to cast on, how to do a knit stitch, how to do a purl stitch and how to bind off. That is all. Easy. Simple. Beautiful. If you are a novice knitter try to knit a washcloth, a scarf or a shrug. If you are and adventurer use this pattern for a blanket.

38 sts = unstretched 6", stretched 9"
Note: Thinner yarn will be narrower, thicker yarn will be wider

CO - cast on

st, sts - stitch, stitches


Cast On multiples of 4 sts (plus 2 sts - optional). I casted on 38 stitches - (9 x 4 sts) + 2 sts for edges (1 st for each edge). For wider items you'll need lot more stitches.
Note: You can cast on ANY multiple of 4 stitches - use this pattern for shrugs or blankets too.

Row 3-4          K 38

Repeat rows as many times as needed for desired length.

Last Row - BO all stitches and weave in ends.
