Chunky knit tube scarf (free pattern)

You can make this thick and chunky cowl scarf in one evening, watching your favorite TV-show, or take it with you as your travel knitting. Two yarns held together create beautiful tweedy texture and make it thick and quick to work in no time on large size needles. Easy pattern repeat makes it a perfect knit-on-the-go project.

WORKING INSTRUCTIONS

To work in rounds:

With the long tail cast-on method, cast on 72 sts, place marker and join in rnd, being careful not to twist the cast-on edge. Work repeating a single rnd for pattern:

Rnd 1 [k1, p3] to marker.

Continue repeating Rnd 1 until your piece measures 35cm/14″ tall from the cast-on edge, then remove marker and bind off in pattern: knit stitches knitwise, purl stitches purlwise. Cut the yarn, fasten off, and weave in all loose ends.

Cut the yarns, fasten off, and weave in all loose ends.

To work in rows:

With the long tail cast-on method, cast on 75 sts. Work back and forth repeating the following 2 rows for pattern:

Row 1 (RS) sl1p, [k1, p3] to last 2 sts, k2.

Row 2 sl1p, [p1, k3] to last 2 sts, p1, k1.

Continue repeating Rows 1-2 until your piece measures 35cm/14″ tall from the cast-on edge, then bind off in pattern: knit stitches knitwise, purl stitches purlwise.

Cut the yarns leaving a tail about 100cm/40″ long, fasten off, thread this tail through a yarn needle and make the vertical side seam using your preferred seaming method. Cut the excess yarn, fasten off, and weave in all loose ends.
