This craft was brought to us by user LaStade, who is also the founder of the Knitting and Crochet Pattern Archive wiki. Gorgeous bright orange scarf- the perfect way to get noticed. It was inspired by LaStade's sister, who asked her to make a remarkable scarf for her to wear while riding her motorcycle. This easy scarf uses the garter stitch for every row except for the sleeve. The sleeve is an opening in the scarf where you can pull one end of the scarf through so that the scarf is held in place around your neck. The scarf measures approximately, 58 inches, tip to tip. .Gauge5 rows = 1 inch 4 stitches = 1 inch
Type of CraftEdit
- Size 10 ½ needles
- 4 oz. Bright orange worsted weight yarn
- 1 oz. Contrasting color (if you wish to make stripes)
- Darning Needle, Stitch holder or double pointed needle, Crochet hook size g or h for making fringe
Note: Color Pattern The color pattern for this scarf is 12 rows of orange and 4 rows of variegated yarn. You may want to make your scarf a solid color, or add your own combination of stripes. The only drawback is that when you change yarn frequently, you will have a lot of ends to weave in. But, I think that the stripes make it look very pretty! So if you want the design of stripes that is shown in my picture, as you knit the rows, follow the color pattern. Beginning Scarf Cast on 4 stitches.Row 1: Knit. Row 2: K1, make an increase in next st, knit the rest of the stitches across. To make the increase, knit the back part of the stitch on the needle, then knit the front part of the stitch on the needle. Continue knitting rows 1 and 2 until you have 20 stitches on your needle. Knit these 20 stitches until you have a section of 15 inches from the beginning row. Optional: follow the color pattern to add stripes of color. Sleeve The sleeve is made by sectioning of 10 stitches that are knitted separately to make two sides. The sides come back together to continue making the rest of the scarf on 20 stitches.
- K1 stitch, place 1 st on stitch holder or double pointed needle, K next st, place next st on stitch holder , continue from * across.You should have 10 stitches on your needle and 10 stitches on the stitch holder.
