Basketweave Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

January 23, 2017
Basketweave Scarf Free Knitting Pattern by blogger Gina Michele

I totally have a thing for chunky scarves. Almost all of my Pinterest style inspiration pins feature great jackets topped with big, knit scarves. I think a great scarf really pulls an outfit together. I’ve been reaching for this particular scarf on a daily basis ever since I knit it, which makes it a winner in my book! 
      The basketweave stitch is so easy (even for beginners!) and it creates a pretty, woven effect. It’s created by knitting clusters of Knit and Purl stitches for a set amount of rows and then reversing the order of the stitches. If you can Knit and Purl, you can make this scarf!
     For finishing touches, I dug into my scrap bin to make the fringe. I chose several bulky weight yarns in similar colors. Not only was this a great scrap busting project, I think the contrasting colors really compliment the scarf. I like how this scarf is neutral, but not boring. I hope you guys enjoy the pattern. Happy Knitting!
