The Easy, Two-Color, One-Row Anyone Scarf can be made in just about any combination of two similar-weight yarns -- for men, women, or children.

The scarf in the top photo is from the version of the pattern included in Quick + Easy Knits (from Interweave Press). The scarf in the next three photos was made for a man, and knit on #13 needles with a gauge of 3 stitches to the inch. This finished scarf measures 8 1/4” wide and 60” long. It took approximately 160 yards of each color.

The scarf is knit in a Seed Stitch pattern, always one of my favorite stitches because of the nubbly texture and reversible, non-curling nature of the fabric. Using two colors in this design creates a subtle striping effect, which can be further enhanced by using a variegated yarn for one of the colors.

Note that each row is worked using only one color.

This pattern, designed and written for newer, as well as more experienced knitters, contains a step-by-step tutorial for designing the scarf to fit your own yarns and desired dimensions, as well as directions for making it as pictured. The pattern also contains illustrated instructions on carrying yarn up the side to make a neat edge.
