Free Pattern – Double Layer Short Scarf

This scarf is not double knitted, I just designed it so that it would fold over onto itself naturally. It knits up very quickly, and has added interest from the seed stitch cuff on each end. (See seed stitch below.) I used a variegated red/pink/gray worked together with a solid pink worsted weight.

Important note: slip the 1st stitch of every row, to prevent one side looking loose.

Using 2 worsted weight yarns held and worked together for the entire project, and size 11 needles,

CO 18 stitches.
Work in Seed Stitch for 2.5 inches.
Work in Pattern (see below) for 32 inches.
Work in Seed Stitch for 2.5 inches.
Bind off.
The long edges of scarf should naturally fold back onto the wrong side. You can, if you like, baste them together with a running stitch, although it’s probably not necessary.

Make 2 pom-poms and attach 1 to each end. This would also look good with 2 smaller pom-poms on each end, but I was running low on patience.

PATTERN:
RS row – Slip first stitch, K across.
WS row – Slip first stitch, K2, Purl until three stitches from end, K last 3 stitches.
