Easy Chunky Scarf

As the days start getting colder, I like to keep warm with soft knit scarves.

This one is particularly good because it knits up so quick and the ribbing adds

an attractive detail.

I used one skein of Cascade Yarn “Magnum” and size 35 circular Knitting needles.

If you wanted it a bit shorter, you could substitute size 19 needles.

Start by casting on 80 stitches.

Now we’ll go row by row. (even though you are using circular needles, you won’t join for working in the round, the circular just give you more room)

You can see how alternating the knit and purl rows makes a “rib” on the right side that will hang vertically.

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3, 4, 5: Knit

Row 6: Purl

Row 7, 8, 9: Knit

Row 10: Purl

Row 11: Knit

Row 12: Knit 20, bind off 10, knit to end

Row 13: Knit 70, cast on 10 stitches, knit to end

Row 14: Purl

Row 15, 16, 17: Knit

Row 18: Purl

Row 19, 20, 21: Knit

Row 22: Purl

Row 23: Bind off all stitches LOOSELY

 The slit you created by binding off and casting on will allow you to slip one end of the scarf through to secure it!
