Free Spring Scarf Pattern

It's getting warm out, but that doesn't mean you have to pack up all of your scarves. Make a scarf that you can wear year round! Rowan Purelife Revive is a blend of recycled silk, cotton and viscose. This yarn is absolutely gorgeous and softens nicely after a little blocking and a little wear.
Here's a super easy (and free) pattern for a spring scarf that will be in your wardrobe for years.
  • Take 2 balls of Rowan Revive yarn and a size 8 US needle. 
  • Cast on 30-34 stitches.
  • Knit 6 rows.
  • *Next row - work Twisted Drop Stitch (see instructions below) across the entire row.
  • Knit 7 rows**
  • Repeat from * to ** until you are almost out of yarn. Bind off on a row 7.
  • Block - we recommend a wool wash like Eucalan or Kookaburra.
  • Wear, wear, wear!
Twisted Drop Stitch: Insert right needle into stitch as if to knit it normally. Wrap yarn around BOTH needles and then around just the right needle. Pull the needle through as you would with a normal knit stitch, taking it through the existing stitch and the extra wrap.
