Three by Three Scarf

Knit blue and green basketweave scarf
Blue and turquoise knit scarf.

Sometimes you have a lone skein hanging out in your yarn stash and you’re not sure what to do with it. I found this gorgeous gradient yarn but only one skein of it! How to use it in a larger project so I could have a cozy scarf? So I had an idea - I picked another skein that was one of the colors from the gradient. Using these two lone skeins created one fairly long scarf. I’m loving the result!

CO 24 stitches. You can make it narrower/shorter by using another number divisible by 6.

Slip knitwise the first stitch on every row for a clean edge. Depending on what the row calls for, only do K2 or P2 for the first 2 stitches on each row.

Rows 1-4: (K3, P3) repeat til end

Rows 5, 6, 7: (P3, K3) repeat til end

Rows 8, 9, 10: (K3, P3) repeat til end

Repeat these 6 rows (rows 5-10) til happy with length of scarf.

Last 4 rows: (P3, K3) repeat til end.

You can add a more defined border by adding 2 Knit stitches at the beginning and end of each row and adjust the total number of stitches by using 28 stitches to start.

Since knit scarves tend to stretch a lot after blocking, I recommend knitting a 4 foot scarf since this one stretched to 5 feet after blocking!
