How to Knit a Ruffled Scarf

Save

Ruffled scarves are a fun way to kick your knitting up a notch -- they can be whatever size you like, and look fantastic with just about any kind of yarn. If you're comfortable with your basic knit stitch, but are looking for a way to make something a little more exciting than a simple rectangle, a ruffled scarf is a quick way to learn new techniques while not straying too far from your comfort zone.

Things You'll Need

  • 200 yards bulky weight yarn
  • US 13 30-inch circular needles
  • 72 stitch markers
  • Yarn needle

Step 1

This scarf is worked on bulky yarn over very large needles, so while there are a lot of stitches in a row, it grows very quickly. Please see the last slide for an itemized list of tools and materials.

Step 2

Cast on 184 stitches.

Knit 4, place marker. Knit into the front and back of the next stitch as follows: knit the stitch, but don't slide it off the needle. Insert your right-hand needle into the back of that stitch, behind the left-hand needle, and knit it again. Pull the stitch off the left-hand needle -- you will have increased a stitch. Place marker.

Tips & Warnings

  • You could make this scarf using any size needles and any kind of yarn you like. Simply cast on more stitches if you're using smaller needles, and work Step 3 as many more times as you like until your scarf is as thick as you want it.
