Rainbow Scarf pattern

Rainbow scarf and beret

This is something I have been thinking that I would fit in when I didn’t have much else to write a post about.

Knitting chartOf course anyone who looked very closely at my original post about the rainbow scarf could have worked out the pattern from the photographs of the charts I used when I made it but I have had a few people compliment me on the scarf and even had someone ask where they could buy one.

I also seem to have a lot of hits on my chunky scarf pattern page, so I thought that a written pattern for the scarf might be of interest to some people and it is still scarf weather, at least over here in the UK. šŸ™‚

It’s really a very straightforward pattern.

Rainbow Scarf Pattern

Using DK yarn and no.8 (4mm) 100cm long circular needles.

Starting with red cast on 360 stitches. This should give a scarf about 6ft (180cm) long.

[Obviously, although using circular needles for the necessary length to hold 360 stitches the knitting itself will be done back and forth and not in a circle.]

The first and last two rows are in moss stitch as are the first and last two stitches of each row.

Row 1: Repeat (k1, p1) to end.
Row 2: Repeat (p1, k1) to end.
Row 3: k1, p1, knit to last two stitches, k1, p1.
Row 4: p1, k1, purl to last two stitches, p1, k1.
