Easiest Farrow Rib Scarf Free Knitting Pattern


This one is dead easy. REALLY easy. Yet fun to knit.
BONUS: It looks the same on both sides, perfect for scarf knitting. AND it's a scarf a man won't mind flinging 'round his neck.

Stitch Pattern:

Cast on a multiple of three ; *K2, p1*; repeat across every row.

Specifics for this scarf:

Three strands of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (yum) But ANY super bulky, bulky, or double strand of worsted will do. If you use a finer gauge yarn, just adjust the needle size/stitch count until you are happy with your result.

I used size 13 (9mm) needles and cast on 21 stitches.

Note: With standard bulky yarn, I would try casting on 24, and using a size 11 (8mm) needle.

Row 1: slip 1st stitch purl wise, k1, p1, *k2, p1* across

Rows 2 through infinity: repeat row 1.

Cast off. See? Easy :-}

What a gorgeous scarf, I love this pattern. Most of my knitting is baby knitting patterns. What a great idea to get that wonderful baby feel for an adult pattern. The only draw back may be the expense of so many baby skeins to make an adult pattern, but may well be worth it. thanks for this post.
