I’ve really been enjoying knitting scarves for myself this fall. My husband wanted one, too. Since we were to soon spend a week in the Smoky Mountains I decided to knit a scarf for him that would be quick and easy but also warm and masculine, soft and washable. After looking at several examples of scar patterns and considering the type of yarn I wanted to use, I chose to make a scarf pattern using rib stitches bordered by moss stitches.
I used I Love This Yarn acrylic yarn in High Sierra Ombre from Hobby Lobby and size US 10 single point bamboo knitting needles. I used two 5 oz, 251 yard skeins for the scarf. Here is the result, displayed on the back porch rocker of the cabin where we stayed in while in the Smokys.
Cast on 40 stitches.
Row 1: K2, P2 across
Rows 2: P2, K2 across
Rows 3-6: Repeat rows 1 and 2 twice
Row 7: (K2, P2) twice, (P2, K2) 6 times, (K2, P2) twice
Row 8: (P2, K2) twice, (K2, P2) 6 times, (P2, K2) twice
Repeat rows 7 and 8 until scarf is of desired length except for the 6-row moss stitch border at the end of the scarf:
Repeat rows 1 and 2 three times
My husband loves his new knitted scarf! And I loved making it for him!
Do you use bamboo knitting needles? They are awesome!
