Everyone seems to be looking for quick gifts to make for Christmas presents right now. Here's a super quick scarf pattern that you can knit up in different colors for more than one person on your list. Super easy - all you need to know how to do is knit, purl, cast on, bind off!
Super quick ribbed scarf knitting pattern
- One skein super bulky yarn (106 yards - use Lion Brand Thick & Quick if you like, which just so happens to be 106 yards!)
- One pair size 19 US (15.5-16mm) needles (you could use 17's - just know you'll get a slightly skinnier scarf)
For a 55" x 8" (approx.) scarf:
CO 15 sts.
Row 1: k3, p1, k2; rep from * to last three sts, ending k3.
Row 2: p3, *k1, p2; rep from * to last three sts, ending p3.
Rep rows 1-2 until you near the end of your skein.
Next row: BO in pattern.
Weave in ends and block. Trim ends. Wrap up and give!
Want it longer and a little narrower? CO 12 sts instead of 15, follow pattern (you'll just work one less pattern repeat [k2, p1 on RS]).
