Twice-Around Circular Scarf

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.
