Despite all the wonderful scarf patterns available out there it’s amazing how often I’m asked for basic scarf patterns. A good chunky 2 x 2 rib scarf is in my opinion, one of the best as it’s double sided and unisex.
This one uses 2 strands of double knit yarn held together to produce a chunky effect of course you could also use a standard chunky yarn. I tend to find I have more double knit yarns in my stash and using 2 different coloured yarns can produce some interesting affects.
2 Balls Sirdar Crofter Dk
Using thumb method cast on 36 stitches.
Work every row in 2×2 rib – (knit 2 stitches, purl 2 stitches repeat these 4 stitches )
Knit until scarf is as long as desired or all of your yarn is used up – remember to save enough to cast off, approx 3 times the width of the scarf.
Sew in your ends.
