Unraveled scarf

Here it is:)  Enjoy!! Let me know if you have any questions. 


Unraveled Scarf designed by Jeanne Shrader

450 yards of fingering weight yarn- sample is Tahiti 2 balls

Size 5 needles

Finished size:  approximately 65 x 14 excluding fringe.


This is really, really, easy- don’t worry too much about exact row counts or stitches.  The yarn is cool, the fringe is cool and it knits up to be a great accessory.

Cast on 9 stitches, purl one row.  Looking at the knit side of your work, place a marker 6 stitches from the beginning of the row.  (6 stitches, marker, 3 stitches)

Increase section:

Right side rows: knit the first 6 stitches, move the marker, increase in the first stitch after the marker (I worked a knit front/back) knit the rest of the row.

Wrong side rows: purl all stitches

Continue working with increases on the right side after the marker  and every 7th row, after the marker then work *Knit 3, Purl 3* across the rest of the stitches.  If you miss a row and this happens on row 9 or 5, that’s ok.  This is stress free knitting.

I increased to 100 stitches after the marker.

Decrease section:

Right side rows: knit the first 6 stitches, move the marker, knit the next 2 stitches together, work the rest of the row.  ** Continue to work the *Knit 3, Purl 3* every 7th row.

Wrong side row: purl all stitches.

Decrease down to the original 9 stitches. 6 stitches, marker, 3 stitches. 

Finishing: Knit the first 6 stitches, move the marker, bind off the last 3 stitches. And… here’s the fun part… take your needle out of the first 6 stitches and unravel them!  Yay!!  The increase stitches and the decrease stitches after the marker will keep the stitches from unraveling more than the first 6 stitches.   I promise, it’s fun!! GO for it!!


This is the draft version, there might be a glitch or two.  If you get stuck please let me know.
