Wibble Wobble Scarf

I used to have a free scarf pattern on Ravelry, but I forgot about it.  This was years ago and I changed websites over time and the pattern was no longer accessible.  I thought I'd post it here, just in case you need a quick-knit project or something warm for the coming months.  The link on Ravelry brings you to the page you are on now.  I particularly like the version that my friend, Steve, made:  Ravelry link.


Yarn: Any heavy worsted or bulky.  The original was knit using Teseo yarn by Cascade:  Fiber: 53% Wool/47% Micro Fiber.  Yardage: 50gram ball = 98 yards.  I think it's been discontinued, but any heavy yarn will work. Approximately 196 yards for short scarf, 294 yards for long scarf

Needles: US #10 / 6.00 mm

Gauge: 4 stitches =1 inch.  Exact gauge is not important.

Hint: In order to be able to distinguish the right side of the scarf from the wrong side, attach a pin or thread to the right side.

Method: Loosely cast on 23 stitches, or any odd number of stitches.

Work 20 rows in garter stitch (every row is knit).

Work 13 rows as follows:

Right side – (knit 1, purl 1), repeat to last stitch, knit 1

Wrong side – (purl 1, knit 1), repeat to last stitch, purl 1.

Repeat the garter and ribbing sections to desired length, ending with a garter stitch section.

Bind off loosely. Weave in ends. Wear and enjoy!

Note: Pattern is for personal use only and is not to be sold. Scarf is not to be knit for resale.
