Tweedy Texture:

This Rice Stitch Scarf is a quick and easy knit that's full of texture, both from the stitch itself and the tweed yarn that's used. While it is a somewhat skinny scarf it's very long, so it should be able to keep anyone warm, no matter how tall they are.

This scarf would also be a great choice for either a male or female who needs to keep warm, depending on the color you choose.

Materials:

  • two balls Knit Picks City Tweed HW (I used color Jacquard), or about 250 yards of your favorite heavy worsted weight wool blend yarn
  • one pair size 9 US knitting needles
  • scissors and yarn needle

Gauge:

20 stitches and 24 rows per 4 inches (5 stitches and 6 rows per inch) in Rice Stitch. Gauge is not critical.

Size:

Finished scarf is is about 3.5 inches wide and seven feet long, but can be knit to whatever size you like.

Instructions:

  1. Cast on 19 stitches.

  3. Bind off and weave in ends.

Rice Stitch:

Row 1: Purl 1, *knit 1 through the back loop, purl 1. Repeat from * across.
