Knitted women’s scarf
Step-by-step knitting instructions
Cast on 25 stitches or multiples of 3 sts plus one additional stitch.
1st row (right side) - knit all stitches to end then turn your work to the wrong side.
2nd and all even rows - purl all sts to end.
3rd row - knit 1, [yarn over*, knit 3 and decrease it to 2 sts (with a help of left needle pull through the 1st stitch two last stitches)] repeat that to end.
5th row - [knit 3 and decrease that to two sts, yarn over*] to last one st., knit 1.
Repeat the pattern starting from 2nd row until you reach the desired length of your scarf.
*yarn over - wrap the right knitting needle with the yarn before a knit stitch to make a new stitch. That way, regardless of decreasing stitches, your total number of sts will constantly remain the same.
For the last row (right side) - knit all stitches to end.
Cast off - [knit two stitches together, slide back from the right needle one stitch onto the left needle] repeat the process to end.
Step 5 (optional)
1st row - Insert a crochet hook into the last stitch after fastening off, and [make from it two more chain sts. Then insert the hook into the second base stitch from your hook, grab the yarn, and pull it through the stitch that is on your crochet hook] to end. Create two more returning chain stitches and turn.
2nd row - [Insert the hook into the first bump* from your hook, do yarn over, and pull it through the stitch that is lying the crochet hook] to end.
Cut the yarn and secure it.
Step 7 (optional)
Attach the yarn and repeat Step 5 for the other end of the scarf.
