I know its summer, so scarves are probably the last thing on your mind, but I wanted to share this pattern. I designed this using a stitch pattern from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury of Knit Patterns. The best thing out this pattern is that it folds up, accordian style, around the neck and flares out at the bottom. I used a handspun yarn I bought at this sheep farm/weaving co-op in New Mexico. Any heavy worsted or chunky yarn would work, something with a little variability in color, like Manos de Uruguay would be gorgeous.

Size: One.

Finished measurements

Width: 7 inches
Length: 74 inches


Manos del Uruguay handspun wool yarn (100% wool; 138 yards per 100 g skein) 3 skeins (feel free to use 2 if you want a shorter scarf)

Yarn needle

Crochet hook

One set US #8/5mm straight needles


16 sts/20 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch


Cast on 31 sts. Work 5 rows garter stitch, slipping the first st of every row.

Begin Fluted Rib pattern.

Row 1, 2, and 3sl1, k2, p1, *k7, p1, repeat from * 3 times, k3.
Row 4sl1, k4, * p5, k3, repeat from * 3 times, p5, k5.
Row 5sl1, k2, p3, *k2, p5, repeat from * 3 times, k3, p3, k3.
Row 6, 7, and 8sl1, k6, *p1, k7, repeat from * 3 times, p1, k7.
Row 9sl1, k2, p3, *k2, p5, repeat from * 3 times, k3, p3, k3.
Row 10sl1, k4, *p5, k3, repeat from * 3 times, p5, k5.

Repeat Rows 1-10 until scarf measures desired length. Work 5 rows garter stitch, slipping the first st of every row. Bind off. Add fringe using crochet hook if desired. Steam block to help lock in the ridges.
