Simple Scarf Knitting Pattern

Beginner knitters will love this simple to knit scarf knitting pattern and all knitters will love the simplicity of a quick and easy knitting project. 

And this easy scarf pattern is a great way to start your Fall knitting.  

Since you'll be using simple knit and purl stitches, bulky yarn and big needles this scarf knitting pattern will be done in no time.

It's also very versatile because you can easily adjust the width of the scarf.  It won't affect the stitch pattern and it'll give you more choices for sizing your knitted scarf.  

This will also make a lovely knitted gift too.  After all the holidays are just around the corner. 

Scarf knitting pattern

I've been wanting a big simple knitted scarf to cover my head and shoulders and this scarf pattern turned out perfect.  I'm sure I'll be using this very soon.

I also decided to add tassels to my scarf knitting pattern to give it a fun look.  If you aren't sure how to make tassels I'm including a video below to help you out.  It's very easy to do.  

And it's a great way to use up some of your scrap yarn too.  You can make multi-colored tassels.

Easy Scarf Pattern Details

Skills Required: Knit, Purl, Cast On and Bind Off

Size: Approximately 10 X 70 inches

Materials: Super Bulky Yarn Approx. 300 yards

Needles: Size 15 US (10.0 mm)

Gauge: 2.5 sts per inch (Gauge isn't really important)

Notes: This is such a big, squishy knit scarf and it’s big enough to wrap around your shoulders like a blanket scarf. I just love mine! 

However if you’d like the option to make it thinner you can cut down the number of stitches and cast on 15 and it won’t interfere with the stitch pattern. 

Your scarf will be about 6 or 7 inches wide instead. This way the pattern is more versatile to your needs and what you like. 

***And one more quick note. To create a nice clean edge slip the first stitch as if to purl with yarn in back and knit the last stitch on every row***

Scarf Knitting Pattern

Using your preferred cast on method, I used the long tail, cast on 24 sts.

Knit 5 rows in Garter stitch.

Continue as follows in stitch pattern:

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3 - 8: Knit

Continue in stitch pattern until you reach the length you want. Make sure to finish knitting on row 8. That way you'll have three garter stitch rows at the beginning and ending.

Finish: Weave in ends. You can add tassels or even pom poms to the corners if you like. 

Stay warm and safe and enjoy!
