Easy Scarf

This scarf is incredibly easy to knit and would be a good project for knitters at any skill level, especially beginners. It’s perfect for social knitting. It’s all garter stitch, which means you knit every row. The asymmetrical shaping is a result of an increase at the beginning of the row and a decrease at the end of the row. There is an additional increase at the end of the next row in the pattern. We chose this gorgeous, hand dyed, self-striping cotton yarn for warm weather knitting and wearing.

Novice knitters will learn how to make a simple increase and decrease in this project.

The scarf is approximately 54” x 36” x 26”. It is knit flat. Gauge is not critical. 5 sts/in after blocking.

Tip: Place a locking stitch marker at the beginning of Row 5 to act as a visual cue indicating the increase edge.

1 skein of Urth, Uneek Cotton. 100% Mercerized Cotton. 275 yards.
Size 6 knitting needles, in any comfortable length. Yarn needle.
Note: Any DK weight yarn will work for this project. Substituting fingering weight would result in a longer, more shawl like piece.
