Knit scarf patterns for everybody – and every budget!
Knit scarf patterns are an essential ingredient in any charity knitter’s ‘toolkit’ because winters are harsh nearly everywhere in North America, and scarves are in big demand. If you knit a lot of scarves, it’s a good idea to have a lot of scarf patterns, so you don’t get bored with any one of them.
KNIT SCARF PATTERNS
Here are three quick and easy knit scarf patterns you can use for charity knitting. If you vary the colors and textures of yarn, you can make a unique scarf from these knit scarf patterns possibly hundreds of times. Add in a new color from time to time for a striped scarf, and you’ll have even more unique knit scarf patterns!
Here’s the easiest knit scarf pattern of them all. With worsted weight wool and #15 (US) needles, cast on 20 stitches. Knit every row until the scarf is as long as you’d like it to be, and bind off. Add a fringe on each end if you like, and you’re done! Another easy knit scarf pattern is to cast on about 300 stitches, and knit until the scarf is as wide as you’d like it to be before you bind off. This knit scarf pattern works well in stripes, too – adding a new color every couple of rows for variety! Here’s a third quick and easy knit scarf pattern, which also makes a completely reversible scarf. Use the first scarf pattern above, but every few inches, purl a row or two instead of knitting it. This will give you a unique ‘ridge’ here and there along the scarf, and make it a truly unique knit scarf pattern. Those are just 3 quick and easy knit scarf patterns. There are probably hundreds of knit scarf patterns online, so if you get tired of varying these ones, do a Google search and find some more.
