Over the weekend, I fell in love with this simple-yet-chic scarf pattern from the Purl Bee.
Autumn is coming up—the best time of year for scarves (in winter, they tend to get swallowed up by big coats)! This unique pattern features triangular ends and a gripping garter stitch that help keep it tucked securely while you’re bustling about your day.
I love the colors that come in the Purl Bee’s kits for this scarf: muted neutrals contrasted with a bright streak of color. So stylish. If you’re interested in making one of your own and you want these exact colors, the Purl Bee offers three separate kits to make this pattern. Or you can work with your own yarn and follow the pattern below:
4 1/2 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch
Before blocking: 5 1/2 (8) inches wide x 56 (79) inches long
After blocking*: 5 1/2 (8) inches wide x 58 (82) inches long
*Garter stitch has a tendency to “grow” with blocking and wear.
With Yarn A, cast on 3 stitches.
*Increase Row (right side): K1, knit one into front and back (k1fb), knit to end. (1 stitch increased)
Knit 3 rows.
Repeat from * 20 (31) more times. [24 (35) stitches]
Repeat Increase Row. [25 (36) stitches]
Knit 1 row.
With right side facing, join Yarn B. Work evenly in garter stitch, knitting each row, for entire length of 1(2) skein(s), or desired length. End with a wrong side row so that when you add Yarn C, its tail will be on the same side as Yarn B’s tail.
With right side facing, join Yarn C.
**Decrease Row (right side): Knit to last three stitch, k2tog, k1. (1 stitch decreased)
Knit 3 rows.
Repeat from ** 20 (31) more times. [4 stitches]
Repeat Decrease Row. [3 stitches]
Weave in ends and block.
