About Farrow Rib:

The farrow rib is a simple pattern stitch that uses only knits and purls, but is a little more interesting than straight garter or stockinette stitch.

It's perfect for beginners because it is an easy pattern that looks somewhat fancy.

The pattern is worked on multiples of three plus one stitches, so if you want to make the scarf wider or narrower, you'll have to do a little math.


  • two balls bulky weight yarn, around 300 yards (I used Lion Brand Jiffy, a 100 percent acrylic mohair-look yarn)
  • size 10 U.S. needles (size 6 metric or 4 UK)
  • sewing needle or crochet hook to weave in ends


  1. Cast on 28 stitches using your favorite cast on method.
  2. Row one: *Knit 2, purl 1. Repeat from * to the last stitch, knit 1.
  3. Row two: Purl 1, *knit 2, purl 1. Repeat from * to end.
  4. Repeat for pattern until you almost run out of yarn.
  5. Bind off. Cut off any excess yarn so you're left with only a couple inches to weave in. Use a crochet hook or yarn needle to weave in ends.
