Very Easy Ribbed Scarf

IMG_0684

This is one of these bits of knitting that is almost absurdly easy. I love ribbed scarves, but the thought of knitting what feels like miles of rib in one colour doesn’t appeal.

So I chose two sets of shaded Britsock colours – turquoise and gold – and got ribbing.

For speed I worked with the yarns held double, and used 3.75mm needles.

I worked two rows of each colour, so I started with the darkest gold and turquoie, then when they ran out the next darkest and so on until I finished with the lightest and brightest colours.

My finished scarf measures 220 cm long and 14 wide – so it’s perfect for wrapping round you several times on freezing cold days.

I’m sure this has been done before, so I’m not going to write up a full pattern. Instead my notes are below, so you can have a go at creating your own multicoloured masterpiece.

I worked my scarf over 35 stitches.

Row 1 : [knit 1, purl 1] to the last stitch, knit 1

Row 2 : Slip the first stitch, [knit 1, purl 1] to the last stitch, slip the last stitch.

I used russian joins to add in the new colours and I staggered the joins a little so they follow each other rather than occurring at exactly the same place.

Seeing how the colours worked together was great fun. and I’d love to do an even stripier version with some mini skeins and a skein of a semi solid colour.

Want the yarn to make a scarf like this? You’ll find it here.

Happy ribbing.
