Ribbed Scarf

Size: One size fits all

Yarn: 300 yards of DK or worsted-weight yarn, ex. Knitca 100% Merino Wool Needles: One pair straight needles or circular US size #15 (10.0mm)

Tapestry needle

Notes: Each row is the same, and each side will look the same, because ribbing (k1, p1) is a reversible fabric. I prefer to slip the first stitch on each row, because it’s a makes a nice edge. This is knitted back and forth on straight needles.

Measurements: 5″ wide x 6o” long (12cm x 152 cm) 


Cast on 20 sts using knitted cast on or long tail cast on.

Row 1: Si, p1, *k1, p1 *rep to end. Turn.

Continue working in rib pattern for 60 inches, or desired length.

Bind off in pattern.

Finishing: Weave in ends.


k1: Knit stitch k1,p1: Rib Pattern p1: Purl stitch s1: Slip stitch (slip knitwise to the right needle without knitting it)
