What you’ll need:

  • 4-5 balls of Cotton 100% yarn from Katia Yarns. I used Color 12 (Tan)
  • Black sewing thread
  • 3.5mm straight knitting needles
  • Darning needle for weaving in ends


  • CO: Cast on (we used the classic long-tail cast on)
  • k: knit
  • Sl1wyib: slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn held in back
  • Sl1wyif: slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn held in front


  • 23 stitches = 10cm in garter stitch on 3.5mm needles.


  • This pattern is one-size. The scarf measure approximately 18cm wide, and can be knit to any length.


  • I find cotton yarn to be a bit heavy, leading to overly-stretched garments. So I added a single strand of black sewing thread. The sewing thread stops excessive stretching while also adding a nice visual effect.



Holding the yarn and sewing thread together, CO 42 stitches.
Knit 2 rows, then continue to Row 1.

Row 1 (rs): Sl1wyib, k to end
Row 2 (ws): Sl1wyib, k2, (sl1wyif, k6)x5, sl1wyif, k3

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until scarf reaches desired length.
Knit 2 rows to finish the border, then cast off.


Weave in any loose ends and block to finish.
