Click For Crochet Abbreviations List

Scarf
With Size 5 U.S. needles (straight or circular – knitter’s
choice) cast on 27 stitches.
*Fisherman’s Rib Stitch pattern
(instructions include a two stitch selvage at each edge):
Row 1: Slip 1 purlwise, purl 1, knit 23, purl 1, knit 1.
Row 2: Slip 1 purlwise, knit 1,
*purl 1, knit next stitch in the row below
[insert right hand needle into the center of the
stitch one row below next stitch on left hand
needle, knit this stitch slipping the stitch above
off the needle at the same time];
repeat from * until 3 stitches remain,
end purl 1, knit 2.
Row 3: Slip 1 purlwise, purl 1,
*knit next stitch in the row below, purl 1;
repeat from * until 3 stitches remain,
end knit 1 below, purl 1, knit 1.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures
approximately 13.5-14.5” ending with Row 3.
(should just fit around the base of the neck).
Next Row: Slip 1 purlwise, knit to end.
Cut yarn leaving a 36” tail for finishing, thread tail
through a tapestry needle, thread needle through 27
stitches and pull up to gather until edge forms a small
circle, thread needle through the stitches again and
secure.
This is a good point to stop and block the scarf
– this will allow checking the length before finishing.
The scarf will relax and lengthen some when blocked,
After blocking it should fit comfortably around the base
of the neck, measuring approximately 15-16”.
* Some knitters don’t like to work a long length of
ribbing – in that case note that the stitch pattern may
be worked as follows with nearly identical results:
Row 2: Slip 1 purlwise, knit 1, *knit 1, knit 1 below;
repeat from * until 3 stitches remain, knit 3.
Row 3: Slip 1 purlwise, knit 1, *knit 1 below, knit 1;
repeat from * until 3 stitches remain, knit 1 below, knit 2.
