Today I want to share an easy scarf pattern that I got to design last year for I Like Knitting Magazine. This half fisherman rib scarf turns out quite beautiful and it works up quickly too even though it’s HUGE. Many scarves measure around 60 inches long, but this one is right around 90 inches long and 10 inches wide! It’s SUPER big and chunky, but it’s an easy pattern to modify and make the scarf into any size you’d like (which might be good if you’re wanting to make this on a budget). If you make this scarf just as the pattern is written, it will most likely be the largest scarf you’ve ever made and probably the coziest too! But what I like most about this piece is the beautiful half fisherman rib stitch. It is so very easy and you’ll find a little tutorial that I put together on how to knit the stitch HERE. It makes the coolest looking fabric, don’t you think? Both sides of the scarf are beautiful and each has a slightly different look. Scroll down for the free pattern and be sure to check out the tutorial if you need extra help.

Description: An oversized, cozy, cream colored scarf perfect to go with any outfit. The thick texture and wool fiber is sure to keep you both warm and stylish. Feel free to modify this pattern any way that you’d like! Simply cast on stitches in a multiple of 2 + 1 and follow the stitch pattern provided. By casting on fewer or more stitches and knitting for more or less rows, you can make this scarf exactly the size that you want.
