Knit every row in this self-fringing scarf, which is worked back and forth along its length. Cut the yarn at the end of each row (including the cast-on row) leaving a 10” tail. Leave a 10” tail as you begin each row.


  • 320 yards of assorted (dk, worsted, novelty) yarn (This is an excellent project to use up left over odds and ends.)
  • Size 8 circular needle at least 32” long. (Although gauge is not important, if you tend to knit very loosely, use a size 7; if you tend to knit very tightly, use a size 9)
  • A marker which opens such as a pin to designate right side of work
  • A tape measure or ruler to measure fringe length

Finished measurements: 50”-60” long (not including fringe) x 5” wide
