This is a very quick and easy pattern for a warm scarf measuring 6″ |16 cm) X 62″ (160 cm). It is very warm and stretchy and so simple that you can pick it up and put it down and do a few rows here and there whilst you’re making supper / waiting for your children to come out of school / watching TV / chatting to a friend…so it doesn’t need to take time away from your other knitting or sewing projects.
You will need 250g (8.8oz) double knitting yarn (I used Patons Gold) and a pair of 6mm (UK size 4/US size 10) knitting needles. Work using two strands of yarn (ie two balls of yarn together) throughout.
Cast on 39 stitches.
Row 1 (right side) and all alternate odd numbered rows: k1 (p1, k1) x 18
Row 2 (wrong side) and all alternate even numbered rows: p1 (k1, p1) x 18
Continue until your scarf measures your desired length or until you have approx 20″ (50cm) yarn left.
Cast off in k1, p1 rib. If you cast off on a right side row begin with a k stitch. If you cast off on a wrong side row begin with a p stitch.
