It's the right time of year to sit with some knitting, especially if you can whip up something cozy. So I'm sharing this simple pattern for a Maxi Scarf (it's nearly 8 feet long!) in a trendy Fall pastel. I designed this scarf for the Jo-Ann Fall Lookbook, which debuted a couple months ago, and it could honestly take the place of a sweater, or make a big statement with a pastel coat.
I'm loving the Fall pastel trend, aren't you? This dusty lavender is so beautiful.
Especially in this chunky, "thick and thin," yarn, Patons Cobbles.
To knit this Maxi Scarf you'll Need:
Gauge: 4” is about 6 stitches and 7 rows.
Cast on 18 stitches.
Row 1: Purl 3, Knit 2, Purl 3, Knit 2, Purl 3, Knit 2, Purl 3.
Row 2: Purl the purl stitches and knit the knit stitches (Knit 3, Purl 2, Knit 3, Purl 2, Knit 3, Purl 2, Knit 3. )
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until your scarf measures 94” (or a length you prefer).
Bind off all stitches. Weave in ends.
