I went searching recently for a scarf pattern for some holiday knitting. I was disappointed in the options so I decided to create my own. There were a couple of needsI had to consider as I developed this pattern: the scarves are for children so they needed to be durable, they needed to be washable and I wanted them to have the look of a ‘winter and wooly’ scarf. I love the feel of the ribbing with the super bulky yarn; it adds texture and durability! It’s long enough that you can wrap it around and tie behind them for sledding… And that is how ‘the super bulky ribbed scarf for kids’ was born!

Given the simplicity of this pattern, you could very easily add additional ribs by casting on (in even increments) more stitches. Additionally, you can add a 2nd skein of yarn to make it longer.


Yarn color used in the photos was Pumpkin.
