Knitting in Circles

This year, circle scarfs have become a popular item on the market. Not only do they keep you extra warm, but they look cute too! This pattern, designed by tentenknits is a wonderful example of how you can knit one of these beautiful scarfs for yourself or someone you love!

Needles: Size US8 [5mm] 40 inch circular
Gauge: 20 sts over 4″ in pattern

The Pattern:
CO 240, make sure you’re not twisting stitches Place Marker and join in round

1st Rnd: Knit all stitches
2nd Rnd: *YO, K2tog*, repeat * * to marker.
3rd Rnd: Knit all stitches
4th Rnd: *Slip 1, K1, Pass Slipped Stitch Over (PSSO), YO*, repeat * * to marker.

Repeat 4 rows until desired width. The example scarf measures approx 60 inches around and 10 inches wide.

Just in case you’re having trouble… The number of stitches never changes throughout the pattern. Each K2tog is paired with a YO (as each Slip 1, K1, PSSO is paired with a YO) if you find that you are increasing or decreasing your stitches in anyway then you missed or added a YO. In Row 4 you should be slipping the YO from Row 2 and knitting the knit stitch. In Row 2, you should be inserting your needle first into the YO then the knit stitch for your K2tog.
