Super Simple Scarf Knitting Pattern in Moss Stitch

This is a super simple scarf pattern – designed for the beginner knitter – or those more experienced who like to knit scarves with bulky yarns. I have designed this knitting pattern to work with my hand spun yarns – but it will work fine with any chunky weight yarn.
This scarf knitting pattern uses about 100 grams of yarn.

I am using a moss stitch for the pattern. I like to use moss stitch for hand spun yarns because it enhances the texture of the yarn.

Moss Stitch
Moss stitch alternates between knit and purl on each row. You knit the purls and purl the knits. It is best to cast on with an odd number of stitches.

Scarf Knitting Pattern

This will knit a scarf that is approx. 7 inches in width and 70 inches in length.

Use size 7 mm needles.
UK size 2, US size 10.5

Repeat rows 3 and 4 to the end of the scarf.
Last 2 rows, knit across to create a garter stitch border.
