DIY // Fluffy Blanket Scarf

It’s been a while since we’ve posted a pattern on our blog, the last pattern being our wrecked tee knit pattern. Since the weather outside is (going to get) frightful, we concocted a scarf pattern that is the perfect combination of sparkly, light, and warm. Yup, we nailed it.

The scarf is really wide, so you can wrap it like a snood, or wear it like a shawl. It’s also super lightweight, so it’s perfect for this flip-floppy weather we’ll be having for the next couple of months until old man winter settles in.

PATTERN

Cast on 80 sts

  • Rows 1 – 8: knit 80sts (garter stitch).
  • Rows 9: purl 80 sts.
  • Row 10: knit 80 sts. Continue working in stockinette stitch for 3 more rows (rows 11-14).
  • Row 15 – 22: knit 80sts.
  • Row 23 – 28: Work in stockinette stitch, starting with the purl side.
  • Rows 29: – 36: knit 80 sts.
  • Rows 37 – 43: work in stockinette stitch, starting with the purl side.
  • Rows 44 – 51: knit 80 sts.
  • Rows 52 – 58: work in stockinette stitch, starting with the purl side.

Continue working the pattern by repeating rows 1-58 five more times, until your piece measures 140cm. You should see a stripes effect formed from alternating between the garter stitch and the stockinette stitch.

    • Hey Naomi, one side will have the stitches in purl, and the other side will have the “stripes” effect – alternating between garter stitch and stockinette. The latter is the right side. Anna

    • Hi Sylvia!

      You may definitely use circular needles to accommodate for the large number of stitches. However, just keep in mind that with this pattern you will be working back and forth and not joining in the round.

      Hope that helps!

  1. So the ends are not sewn together like an infinity scarf? It’s a regular scarf that is wide enough to wear as a snood? Very pretty, I hope to try it.

    • Hi Pam!

      Thanks for the kind words :) Our version isn’t sewn together, but we think that’s a fantastic idea! If you plan on wearing it snug against your neck, it might be smart to give that a try. We’d love to see how yours turns out!

  2. LOVE this pattern – thanks for posting! Does the pattern use all 4 balls entirely? Asking, because I’d like to make mine larger & am trying to figure out how many (more) balls are needed. Thanks so much!

    • Thanks Chico! Yes, we used all 4 balls for the pattern. If you’d like to make yours longer, I would say that each additional ball will yield somewhere between 12″-13.75″inches in length (assuming you use the same yarn and needle sizes as indicated in the pattern). Anna

  3. I’d love to make this scarf, but smaller: both narrower and shorter, I think. I assume all I have to do is some simple math to determine how many stitches I should cast on depending on the width in inches I’d like. Will it make any difference if I come up with an even or add # of stitches?

    • Hi Pam, thanks for your message. For this pattern, it doesn’t matter if you subtract an even or odd number of stitches because the scarf will come out symmetrical either way. Hope that helps!
