How To Knit A Scarf

How To Knit A Scarf

VideoJug presents a short film, with the help of expert knitter Rachel Ong, showing you how to knit a scarf. This is one of the simplest items of clothing to knit, so learn how to do so with VideoJug's help.

Step 1: You will need

  • Three balls of extra-bulky yarn, each in a different colour
  • One pair of size 17.5 straight knitting needles
  • A yarn needle
  • A pair of scissors

Step 2: Cast On

Start by casting on 10 stitches using your first coloured yarn.

For more information on how to cast on and knit, see our videos ' How To Cast On' and 'How To Knit The Knit Stitch'.

Knit 12 rows.

Cut the yarn with the scissors, leaving a 6 inch end.

Step 3: Add a second yarn

To add your second coloured yarn, cut the old yarn, leaving about a 6 inch end.

Hold the yarn end and the beginning 6 inches of the new yarn together with your left hand.

Now just start knitting with the yarn after about 5 stitches stop and tie the ends of the yarns together in a small knot.

Knit 12 rows with the new yarn

Cut the yarn with your scissors and again, leave a 6 inch end.

Step 4: Add a third yarn

Add your third coloured yarn

Knit 12 rows

Your scarf will now be taking shape.

Step 5: Keeping knitting

Repeat the above steps three more times. This will probably take a few hours, or you can do a little each night.

Step 6: Cast off you stitches

Cast off the final 10 stitches to produce a neat and finished edge to your scarf.

Step 7: Work in your yarn ends.

Work all the yard ends away with a yarn needle.

Step 8: Done

You are now the proud owner of a beautiful new scarf and ready to experiment with style using different yarns and different size needles.
