Musings on knitting, crochet, and a fairly loopy life.

simplest seed stitch scarf ever

This really, truly is the simplest scarf in the world to make. But despite that, it's got great graphic appeal, and works equally well for men, women, and kids.

  • Any two colors of worsted weight yarn. For this project, I used Caron Simply Soft One Pound. MC=Azure (523); CC=Royalty(530)
  • Size 8US needles
  • Blunt-tip tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Gauge: Does not matter for this project

Pattern: (Seed Stitch on odd number of stitches) 
Row 1: *K1, P1; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: *K1, P1: repeat from * to end of row.

Using CC, cast on 21 stitches.

Work in pattern for 3 inches, ending after a Row 2.

Switch to MC, and continue working in pattern for 56 inches, or until 3" less than desired length. End on Row 2.

Switch to CC, and knit in pattern for another 3 inches. Bind off.

Weave in ends, fling around neck in a jaunty manner, and enjoy the compliments.
