About this pattern: This is a (very!) quick to knit circular scarf that is knit flat then seamed together. Because it’s made with very bulky yarn, it’s good for gift knitting, especially if the gift-ee lives somewhere cold. It can be worn three ways – wrapped once around the neck, wrapped twice around the neck, or wrapped twice covering the ears. See below for other pictures!
Difficulty: Very easy and quick.
Size: About 5 feet long before joining – long enough to wrap twice around the neck.
Needles: size 13.
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Rasta (color: Soriano), 2 hanks (about 180 yards) or a super bulky yarn of your choice.
Gauge: 1″ = 2 stitches across, 3 stitches down in garter stitch.
Cast on 15.
Row 1: Knit all stitches.
Row 2: Knit all stitches.
Row 3: *K1, YO* repeat until last stitch, K1.
Row 4: *K1, drop the YO stitch* repeat until last stitch, K1.
Repeat rows 1-4 until the work measures about 5 feet.
End pattern on Row 2. Bind off loosely, and use the tail to weave the two ends of the work together, creating a circle. You may choose to twist the work beforehand – the scarf in the picture has been twisted once prior to connecting.
Weave in ends.
