Free Pattern: Mint Circle Scarf

I don't know how the rest of you feel about the color mint, but I for one am in love. As a result, I could not resist knitting this super soft, super cozy circle scarf before I left for Spain.




I gifted it to my sister before I left for Spain (and have definitely been enjoying the 50+ degrees weather here). Before I left, though, I spent about a week wearing it every day.




Mint is a free circle scarf pattern that is quick, easy, soft, and highly customizable. If it looks too long or too short, subtract or add ten stitches. Knit until it's the perfect height for you. The more you knit, the cozier the scarf!






Pattern: Mint Circle Scarf
Yarn: 2 skeins Bernat Softee Baby Solids
Needles: US size 10 16" circular
Gauge: 3.5 stitches/1"

*yarn held double throughout*

CO 90 stitches
Row 1: K every stitch
Row 2: P every stitch

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until scarf measures 14 inches from beginning.

Please, please, please comment or email with any questions and I will sure to get back to you as quick as I can! :)

  5. Can this scarf be made using straight needles?

  6. If you want to use straight needles you can simply cast on for however wide you want it to be, knit each row until its the length you want, then graft the two ends together. You can also do a provisional cast on for a seamless graft.

    Provisional cast on means your stitches are still live at the bottom. You can then join the two ends seamlessly.

  8. Also, should I use US size 10 needles, and how would it look if I used finer yarn?

  9. If you're using finer yarn I would use smaller needles. Make a test swatch to see how you like it.

  13. Hey! I was wondering how would you do the "yarn held double throughout" part?

    ReplyDelete
  14. All you need to do is buy two skeins of the same (or different) yarn and hold the ends together in your hand as if you were knitting with just one strand.

  16. Great project! I'm starting mine today but had a quick question. Could I substitute Lion Brand's Pound of Love for the project? There was a sale at A.C. Moore last week.

    Thanks! :)

  17. Definitely. The thickness will be a bit different. You can work with just one strand or work from both ends of the skein. I recommend doing a gauge swatch to make sure you get the length that you want before casting on.

  21. This mint cozy circle scarf is beautiful. The aura of the mint color is good and it perfect for a circle scarf. This one is also a good project for holiday – as a present for yourself, family, friends etc. By the way, thank you for sharing this post! :)

  22. Hello,
    Thanks for the pattern. I'm a beginner and purchased a rectangular knitting loom recently. Is it possible to make this using the loom? Do you think learning to knit with needles or learning to use a knitting loom is easier?
