close up of the mesh rib pattern

This is a pattern I made in order to use up my stash of leftover worsted weight yarn. With Christmas coming up, I wanted to have a scarf I could make without actually going out and buying anything extra. :-)

The great thing about this pattern stitch is that it is really easy to keep track of and very repetitive, thus making your finished project look harder than it actually was. After a few rows in the pattern stitch you won't have to look at the directions anymore.


Size 8 Needles
Worsted weight yarn, medium weight (I used various skeins of Simply Soft and cotton-ease.)

Mesh rib pattern:

1. K1 (*K2 tog, yo twice, SKP). Repeat from *, end with K1
2. (K3, P1) repeat until last two stitches, then K2 at the very end.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for pattern.


1. CO 34 stitches
2. Complete 4 rows in seed stitch
3. Knit in mesh rib pattern stitch until square reaches about 7 inches (you can also just count 15 or 16 yarn overs)
4. Change to new color of yarn
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until scarf reaches desired length. End with 4 rows in seed stitch.

I completed this with five different colors in simply soft, and fringed by cutting 18" strips of each different color and making a slip knot.


yo twice: This is a double yarn over. Bring the yarn forward between the needles and then wrap around one more time. This creates the hole in the pattern stitch and an extra 2 stitches.

SKP: slip one stitch, knit the next stitch, pass slipped stitch over.

Seed stitch: Row 1: * k1, p1, repeat until end.
Row 2: * p1, k1, repeat until end

Re: Scarf

Wow, you are quite talented. Where did you get the pattern for the ruby red shoes? I have a six month old baby at home, I would love to make those for her... her name is even Scarlett. :-)

I think the headband is good for a quick gift when you have limited time. It can be knitted in the round but I found it easier to sew a seam because I could adjust it to make it tighter if needed.

Hi there! This is a wonderful scarf! I've been looking to make some scrappy scarves with my leftovers as well, with different yarns. This is so cute and gets me inspired!
Great seeing your stuff, love the pics!
Thanks dear!
