How to knit a unisex scarf- free pattern

 

Hello my beautiful knitters, today I’ll show you how to knit a scarf that I’ve made for my husband, but which it fits me very well too, so I can say it’s a unisex scarf.

This scarf is perfect for cold weather, for spring-autumn if you use cotton yarn, or winter if you use wool.

This project is perfect for beginners. If you only know to knit and purl this pattern is perfect for you.

You can wear it wrapped around your neck:

 

Or you can make a City Slicker Knot: fold the scarf in half lengthwise and wrap it around your neck, then pull the loose ends through the loop that was created by the fold.

 

Or just wear it wrapped around the shoulders:

If it’s easy for you to learn from a video, I’ve made a youtube tutorial, that you can see below, just follow the link.

For my scarf I used cotton yarn ( three years ago I’ve bought a few cotton cons without a label, so I don’t know what brand my cotton is) and I knitted with the thread fold it in three and 5mm needles. If you use wool (like I did in the youtube video) just use what needles are indicated on the label.

You will need:

5mm needle,

400g cotton,

5 mm crochet if you want to make a border,

Scissors.

Skill level: Easy+

Abbreviations:

k= knit,

p= purl,

For the edge I’ve crocheted four rows of single crochet with a 5 mm hook.

You can wash it by hand or in a washing machine at 30 degrees, and block it (if you used cotton you can iron it). Now you can enjoy your new scarf!

  1. I finished this pattern last month using a variegated yarn that ended up in stripes. I want to make it again in a solid color, but I want it to be a shawl. If I repeat each row twice, will it be as simple as that or will I need some stitches in between?

    1. You don’t need stitches in between, but if you let me a few hours I will rewrite the pattern and make a chart/diagram to be more friendly to knit it if you want to repeat the pattern two or more times. I will send you a message when the pattern is ready.
