About this Pattern
If you’re looking for an easy knit scarf pattern that’s a little more interesting than a plan rib or garter stitch, you’re in the right place. Our easy knit scarf for beginners has a nice textured stitch that’s easy to learn and easy to knit.
This is a great project to practice your knit and purl stitches. You’ll alternate an all knit row with a row of knits and purls to create a stretchy stitch that’s perfect for scarves.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started, a video tutorial and, of course, written instructions to walk you through the entire project from start to finish.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it is in the same weight category. Check your gauge to make sure this substitution won’t affect the sizing and keep in mind the recommended amount will likely be inaccurate.
