I created this pattern when my husband asked me to make scarf for his dad (a last minute Christmas gift), but really this is a nice pattern for men and women, young and old alike. This is a great project for beginners, but is also a great pattern for experienced knitters... a little more complicated than plain stockinette but easy to knit while watching TV or chatting with your knitting group!
The sample scarf is was knit on US Size 8 needles in Berroco Comfort worsted weight yarn but any worsted weight yarn can be used. Berroco Comfort (worsted weight, 1 ball is 210 yards/193 meters, 3.5 ounces/100 grams). For this scarf, I cast on 26 stitches and used approximately 1 and 1/3 balls of yarn (I used 1 entire ball and had 61 grams remaining on the 2nd ball). My scarf was a little over six inches wide and is over 5 1/2 feet long. Gauge is not crucial. [Note: If a wider or narrower scarf is desired, cast on more or fewer stitches in increments of five stitches. For example, cast on 36, 31, 26, or 21 stitches].
Thicker or finer weight yarns can also be substituted; just use the needles recommended for the yarn. This scarf can be made wider or narrower depending upon your personal preference. The pattern includes notes for how to make your scarf narrower or wider.
The pattern is both charted and written out long hand.
Please feel free to make this pattern for charity, friends, family, and loved ones.
