Wrapped Garter Stitch Scarf - Skinny Jeans Version

Wrapped Garter Stitch Scarf - Skinny Jeans Version

“Springy ridges and flowing strands.”

This scarf could be the easiest thing you’ll knit all summer. By alternating straightforward garter stitch with double yarn-overs, you’ll get this fantastic texture. Springy ridges contrast with flowing strands to create a fun, breezy accessory. And the fringe just dances!

We love how Tahki Skinny Jeans’ tape structure adds a fabulous dimension to this light scarf. A bouncy blend of cotton and nylon, Skinny Jeans suits a whole range of gauges. At this scarf’s open gauge, the worsted-weight ribbon shows off its potential to the fullest!

GLOSSARY: K = knit; St(s) = stitch(es); YO twice = double yarn over (bring yarn forward between needles, then back over right needle, to front again and to back again; two loops formed around right needle).


Set aside yarn for fringe: Make sixty 11"/28cm lengths of yarn for adding fringe later, as follows: Wrap yarn 60 times around heavy cardboard that measures 5½"/14cm across; cut across wraps. Set aside.

Cast on: Using long-tail cast-on method, cast on 28 sts. Knit 10 rows.

Begin stitch pattern: Row 1 *K1, YO twice*; repeat between * * to last st, K1.
Row 2: Knit, dropping YOs off needle as you come to them. Note: After this row, gently tug on work to extend the dropped stitches fully.
Rows 3-12: Knit.
Repeat Rows 1–12 until scarf measures 72"/183cm or desired length, ending with Row 11. Bind off, matching tension of cast-on edge as closely as possible.

Attach fringe: Attach one piece of fringe to each cast-on and bound-off stitch as follows: Fold single piece of fringe in half and use crochet hook to pull loop from back to front through stitch; tuck tails through loop and pull to tighten.

Finishing: Weave in all ends as invisibly as possible (beginning and ending tails can be incorporated into fringe). Using medium heat, steam-press fringe to flatten.
