About this Pattern
If you haven’t knit anything before and you don’t know where to begin, you’re in the right place. This is the pattern I recommend all new knitters begin with.
Through this project you’ll learn the fundamentals of every knitting project: casting on, knit stitches and binding off. Sure you can learn all these skills individually but we believe new skills are learned when you incorporate them into a project you can enjoy.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you will need to get started as well as a video tutorial and written instructions to complete this easy knit hat from start to finish.

- St(s) Stitch(es)
These abbreviations are industry standards and are used to simplify the pattern and making it easier to read. Whenever you see a “K” simply tell yourself to knit.
13 sts x 24 rows = 4″
As a beginner you don’t need to worry much about gauge right now. Just know it is a really important metric in the overall size of a project, including this beginner knit scarf. If your scarf turns out much wider, longer or you run out of yarn, you may want to measure a section of the scarf and compare that to the gauge. If your measurement is different, that’s why the sizing or yardage was off.
