Double Stranded Reversible Parallelogram Scarf Knitting Pattern

Chunky Reversible Parallelogram Muffler type Scarf

Free EASY Knitting Pattern

This was the first item I knitted using a patterned stitch.

I wanted a muffler type scarf that was wide enough to wrap around my head but long enough to go around my neck and into my coat for when I was walking the dogs out in our windy fields.

reversible parallelogram stitch knit with two strands of yarn
This is a very easy to follow stitch pattern

The Reversible Parallelogram stitch pattern was something I found at Knitting On The Net and I liked it but by seeing the photo of the swatch wanted a cleaner edge so I chose to make garter stitches on each side for a border.

I used two skeins of Red Heart SS  Gray Heather for the scarf.

The add-on 11″ fringe took a third skein.

Pattern

  • Size 13 (9 mm) straight knitting needles
  • Two skeins of worsted weight yarn in the same color
  • Crochet Hook or yarn needle to weave in ends or attach fringe

Gauge: 3 stitches per inch (not important)

With 2 strands held together loosely cast on 30 stitches

Knit six rows in garter stitch
