    ScarveS are a knitter’S Staple.

    they’re wonderful giftS,

    fabulouS StaSh-buSterS, and

    fun wayS to work with new

    Stitch patternS and yarnS.

    I’ve gathered 7 free scarf knitting patterns here for you here; I know you’ll find at least one that strikes your fancy!

    The Spiral Scarf by Laura Bryant is simply beautiful. It’s knit in cushy merino yarn, using short-rows to make the wedge shapes that cause the scarf to spiral as it’s knit. This is a great project for learning or practicing short-rows. Use an angora yarn between the wedges to add a wisp of softness.

    Marilyn Murphy’s Rittenhouse Scarf is worked in two halves from the center out so

    Knitting Scarves for all Seasons:7 Free Scarf Knitting Patterns

    that the ends are identical. It’s also reversible because it’s worked in single rib that grows into cables. This is a fun, fast knit that makes a wonderful gift.

    The Wavy Orange Scarf by Rebecca L. Daniels is knit lengthwise, in a version of the beautiful and popular feather and fan stitch. It’s a lovely lace scarf that’s a joy to knit.

    Mags Kandis worked her Modern Quilt Wrap square by square in the easy and satisfying mitered-square method of color knitting. You’ll love wrapping yourself up in this show-stopper!

    Juliet Scarf by Louisa Harding is a beautiful lace scarf that’s a quick knit. It’s adorned with a little rosette brooch, too, pattern included!

    Eunny Jang’s Blooming Cotton Scarf is color knitting at its best. It’s knit in the round using a combination of knit and slipped stitches and ending with a no-finish fringe that’s made by cutting and raveling edge stitches. Unique and beautiful!

    Building Block Scarves by Sarah Hoadley is an easy knitted scarf in two sizes, with mitered corners and center graft line, worked in the round from the outside in. Pick two contrasting colors to really make the mitered corners stand out.

    Happy scarf knitting!

    Working yarn is wrapped around the stitch.

    Turn and work to beginning of row. Repeat this action at each turning point. If working garter stitch, this is all you need do—when all stitches of the row have been engaged, simply turn and knit across all stitches:

    Short Row Savvy—an Introduction Laura Bryant©2010

    The concept of short rows is easy—simply work a portion of the stitches in a row, then turn and work back, building more height on one side with an extra partial row. Continue to stack more and more rows onto the base while stepping the stitches over and you will see an angled shape that can either repeat for a curved edge, or be balanced in the other direction for flat fabric with dynamic diagonal design lines.

    The key to successful short rows is to wrap the working yarn around the next stitch before each turn (known as a “wrap and turn” and abbreviated to “w & t”).

    Work across the number of designated stitches, bring working yarn forward between needles as if to purl:

    Slip next st as if to purl:

    Put yarn back between needles and return the slipped stitch to left hand needle:
