Holly’s Knitted Wool Scarf Pattern

Posted on

A couple of years ago, I decided to test my skills as knitting and make a scarf without following any patterns.  I kept it simple with just knit and purl stitches and this is the scarf I came up with:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By alternating knit and purl I was able to get a fun texture and pattern going, and I seem to get compliments on it whenever I wear it out.  I decided to recreate it and by doing so, take notes and record the pattern for others. Bear with me, this is the first time I have tried to record my own pattern for others to follow, so here we go!

Size:
Approximately 87 inches long and 4-5 inches wide

Materials Needed:
• Size 13 Knitting Needles
• Tapestry Needle to weave in yarn tail
• Super Bulky Weight Yarn (I used two balls Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Wool and Acrylic blend) You can buy this yarn on Amazon and here are a few of my favorite colors for this scarf:

Scarf Pattern:
With Size 13 needles, cast on 14 sts.
Border:
Rows 1-6:  Knit all sts
Block 1 (18 rows):
Row 7: Knit 2, Purl 2, Knit 2, Purl 2, Knit 2, Purl 2, Knit 2

Repeat Block 1 and 2, 8 more times each to have 18 blocks total.

Repeat row 1-6 to finish border. Cast off. Cut yarn leaving a 4-6 inch tail. Weave in tails. Here are a few process pictures to help with getting this scarf started:
