Chunky Scarf with Tassels

Added Oct 25, 2010

Do you knit? Like sewing, knitting can seem intimidating in the beginning— but once you’ve gotten the hang of it, knitting makes for a relaxing past time, and, you can make really fabulous accessories. This chunky scarf is super cozy and the tassels add an element of quirk while creating some weight for a nice hang. An added plus is that you can make this project for a man, woman or child— for a man you could leave out the tassels, for a child, you could add more!

Material Notes

Two size 6 or 8 needles (depends on yarn thickness), 1 ream of pink yarn.

      hello there— Only 1 skein of yarn was used for this project (the scarf is about 6’ long). I know that skeins of yarn vary in length, so we had 2 to work with but only needed the one. Maybe a hat next!

    This is a lovely scarf and the pictures are great, but there seem to be some key pieces if information missing from the instructions. I am guessing the stitch pattern must be a 1×1 rib (knit 1; purl1) as the back and front look the same(see photo 18 the front and back are visible at the same time). Also, the number of stitches used in the finished sample must be around 48-50 (not 20 as stated in step 3). Count the ribs in step 16 and double for the ribs on the reverse side. I also suspect the 1st stitch of each row is slipped, because the edge is nice and flat.

      Hi sewmom2, thanks for the tip— the instructions have been updated to clarify that scarf is indeed a 1×1 rib knit. Thanks!

    This is lovely, I recently posted some of my own knitting projects! I was just wondering how long the actual scarf was and also, the weight of the yarn you used, if you know! Thanks, :)
