Atilla Scarf - Free Knitting Pattern!

I love texture knitting more than I love knitting with multiple colors.  These 2 stitch patterns are both super easy (ALL KNIT!) and are squooshy and comfortable around the neck.  I chose a pretty variegated yarn that looks great in these textures.  (my yarn was from Knitpicks, Swish Tonal, "Canopy" was the color I believe)

Finished Size is approximately 11" W (at widest point) x 60" L.
I washed mine and then just finger blocked it and let it air dry.

Tools & Materials:

  • Worsted weight yarn approx.  285-300 yds

Gauge: 

4.5 sts per inch in Garter Stitch



Abbreviations: 

k = knit
k2tog = knit 2 together
k2togtbl = knit 2 together thru the back loop.
st = stitch
rep = repeat
sl-1 = slip one stitch (do this purl wise)
yo = yarn over
kfb = knit in the front and the back of the stitch to increase

DIRECTIONS:


CO6  then knit one row.

Set up rows:
WS 1. kfb, k1, yo, k2tog, k2togtbl.
 RS 2. k1tbl, k4, kfb,   [7 sts]

Love the simple elegance of this scarf. What a great design! Thank you so much for the pattern. I'd love to try it with different yarn weights. Do you think the stitch definition would be good in a bulkier yarn? It'll be fun to experiment. --Judy in WY

Dear Anonymous,
I don't think the stitch definition would be any more/less using bulky yarn - prob the same. I would stick with the worsted though as otherwise I think your scarf might be too bulky.

Is there an error in row 9 as well as row 5?

Dear Anonymous,
Yes! You were right. I had k2 but it should have been k3 - thank you, I have now corrected it.

Lovely .. hope to cast on tonight. Question .. very last row finishing instruction includes “kb”, but that stitch is not I the legend. Perhaps it should be “kfb”?

Thanks for another simple, fun pattern,

Michele

HI Michele,
Oops another typo - thanks for pointing out. It was a kfb, not kb.
