I have had a crochet version of this scarf for almost three years and have been asked many times to create a knit version of the Unforgettable One-Skein Scarf, so I finally did! This simple four row repeat is great for practicing your decreasing and yarn overs and creates a nice mesh pattern that is similar to the V-stitch crochet version. I really like how this turned out and enjoyed wearing it to the 2016 Knit and Crochet Show in Charleston, SC last weekend.
This Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn is really beautiful and I have loved it every time I have used it. I recently created a crochet handbag with it for I Like Crochet magazine and the colors look just as good over a large project as they have with these smaller scarves. I decided to make the knit version of this scarf an infinity scarf but it can easily be left open like the original. Here is a picture of the original crochet version:
You can easily create a regular scarf with or without fringe or an infinity scarf – the choice is up to you!
Buy a large print, ad-free version of this pattern for $1.99 at my Etsy shop.
Unforgettable One Skein Knit Scarf
What You’ll Need
Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, 3.5 oz/100g, each approx 280 yards/256 meters (acrylic): 1 ball #3950 Petunia
Size 8 (5.0mm)
Advanced beginner (should know how to k2tog and ssk)
Length: Approximately 65”
Width: Approximately 4”
K2tog (knit 2 together) – insert right needle from front to back (knitwise) into next 2 sts on left needle. Wrap yarn around (just like a regular knit st) and pull it through.
Ssk (slip, slip, knit) – slip first st to right needle knitwise, slip second st to right needle knitwise, insert left needle left to right into the fronts of these sts, wrap yarn around (just like a regular knit st) and pull it through
Gauge is not crucial for this project
Cast on 29 sts.
Rows 1-2: Knit
Row 3: K3, *yo, k2tog; rep to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 4: K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 5: K2, *ssk, yo; rep to last 3 sts, k 3.
Row 6: K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 3-6 until desired length or almost out of yarn, then knit 2 rows.
That’s it! If you would like an infinity scarf like I did, just stitch the 2 edges together. If you would like to leave it open, feel free – the garter st on the ends helps with curling and gives it a nice edge. I would definitely recommend blocking this, too – it helped mine not curl as much.
Happy Knitting 🙂
**Please note that this is the correct pattern above. The k2 in row 5 was changed to k3, which is correct.
