Chunky Garter Ridge Scarf

Easy free scarf pattern for beginner. All you need to know is how to do knit and purl stitches to have a fashionable scarf for the fall.

The idea for the scarf came when a friend asked me to knit her a scarf from a reference image. After searching the web, I could not find anything that looked like the scarf in the photo.

Once I completed the scarf, I thought I would share the pattern (I think it turned out great and will be perfect for the fall/winter time).

Now on to the pattern!

6 skeins of Loops & Threads Urban in #7 Black ( I have dye lot 1947) or 1110m of yarn 
This scarf is made by holding a "double strand" or holding yarn from 2 different skeins for the thickness.

US 11 or 8 mm 32" circular needles (Although the scarf is worked flat I like the feel of knitting with circular needles)

Gauge per 1"
Stockinette: 4 stitches per 3 rows (not crucial)

The scarf is about 30 cm wide and 233 cm long or 12" x 91.73" 

Cast on 30 stitches on to needle. I prefer to use long tail cast on but you can use your preferred method.

The ridges are formed by a simple 4 row repeat

Row 1: Knit all stitches
Row 2: Purl all sts
Row 3 & 4 : Knit all stitches

Repeat these four rows until piece measures as long as you desire it to be ending on row 3. 
Bind off  and sew in loose threads
