COZY PUMPKIN SPICE SCARF

 

 

Squishy, soft, cozy, and adorable infinity scarf. The pattern is based on the Seeded Rib (also called English Mob Rib) Stitch Pattern, so it's reversible and ideal for wrapping in. The scarf is wide enough to use it as a hood in case you need a little bit more warmth.

I picked fluffy alpaca mix yarn to make this wrap even more cozy. As with most of my scarf patterns, you can adjust the pattern to another yarn, change the size or length of the finished garment, and play with the color choices!

CAST ON

For the stated width cast on 23 sts., using long tail cast on method (or any other cast on you like).

  • You can change the width of scarf casting on another number of stitches. To keep the pattern true you have to take a number, divisible by 4, and add 3 more stitches: 16+3, 44+3, etc. (mine is 20+3).

BODY OF A SCARF

  • Note: To make edges of the scarf look more polished, we are going to slip the first stitch and to purl the last stitch of every row.

Row 1: sl1 wyif, k2, (p1,k3) 5 times.
Row 2: sl1 wyif, (p1, k3) 5 times, p1, k1.

  • Continue to knit these 2 rows until desired length. If you want your scarf to be more long, don’t forget that you’ll need more yarn. 
  • Scarf has to end with the row 2.

FINISHING

Bind off pretty loosely: k1, (slip st back to left needle, k2tog) until 1st is left.
Cut yarn leaving appr.8”(20cm) tail and pull it through the loop of last stitch.
Weave in ends. Enjoy!
