Scarf Knitting Pattern

Three (3) skeins Mountain Meadow Cody yarn (sport weight) 2oz skein, 200 yds

Size 7, 8 or 9 needles, depending on how loose/open you want your finished scarf to be.  Gauge is not critical. 

You will need two stitch markers for the first section of the scarf.

Important stitches:

K1inc1 – knit in front of stitch, and then without slipping the stitch off your needle, knit into the back of the stitch (increase).

skp – Slip one stitch (knit wise), knit one stitch, pass the slipped stitch over  the knitted stitch (decrease).

rm/pm – remove marker/place marker.

Cast on 9 stitches.

Facing Triangles:

  • NOTE: Check your stitch count FREQUENTLY!  The most common error is forgetting the K1inc1 at the beginning of the row.

Row 1: P1, K1inc1, turn; pm, s1, k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.

Row 2:  K1, K1inc1, k to marker, rm, k1, turn; pm, s1, k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.

Repeat row 2 until all CO sts have been used up, ending with:  K1, K1inc1, knit to marker, rm, k1. (17 stitches)

  • FANCY EDGE: If you would like a “lacier” edge, use a yarn over (YO) increase instead of the K1inc1.

Without cutting yarn, make another facing triangle.  End with s1, pm, k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.  (34 stitches)

Chevrons:

Row 1:  K1, K1inc1, k to marker, rm, skp; turn, s1, pm, k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.

Repeat Row 1 until there are 9 unknitted stitches; end with k1, K1inc1, k to marker, rm, skp, pm,  k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.

  • FEELING LUCKY? Take three dice, roll them, add up the total and knit that many rows before turning.  A totally random look!

 

Ending Triangle:

Repeat Row 1 above until there are 17 unknitted stitched on each needle; end with k1, K1inc1, k to marker, rm, skp, pm,  k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.

K1, K2tog, k to marker, rm, skp, pm, k to last stitch, move yarn to purl position, s1 purl wise.  Repeat until you have three stitches left.  Bind off.  Weave in ends.

  • NOTE: If you are using the YO increase, you have to K1, YO, K2tog, K2tog at the beginning of each row.
