Seeded Rib Scarf

Sometimes a beautiful yarn and a good stitch pattern are all you need for a great scarf. We paired Filatura di Crosa’s Zara yarn with seeded rib for this unisex scarf. I wanted to wear it home as soon as Kathy P. finished knitting it!

Zara is made from the finest Italian merino wool. It has a smooth finish that feels soft against your skin and still keeps you warm. Our scarf is knit in crimson, a rich red (it’s not as pink as it appears in the photo). Zara comes in a wide array of colors, so there are plenty to choose from.

Here’s how to make yourself a Seeded Rib Scarf:


one size – approx. 5 by 60 inches

Filatura di Crosa Zara yarn 3 balls
size 9 needles

5 stitches to 1 inch, although gauge is not critical for this project

Cast on 35 sts.

Row 1: K3, *p1, k3; repeat from * to end.

Row 2: K1, *p1, k3; repeat from * to last 2 sts, p1, k1.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until one yard of yarn remains. Bind off in pattern.

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

  1. Thanks, Loop, for this! Maybe it’s the color you chose, but I can already tell that one of these will end up in next fall’s box for the Red Scarf Project.

  2. Thanks, Elizabeth! I hadn’t thought of it, but you’re right. It’s a great choice for the Red Scarf Project.

  3. I wish someone would remind me about the Red Scarf Project in enough time to make a scarf. I missed it this year. Maybe I should just knit a red scarf now.

  4. Love the scarf – beautiful color. I’d also like to know where I can find the pattern for the sweater underneath it.

  5. That’s the Jackie Jacket from Blue Sky Alpacas. I apparently forgot to post it to the site, but we have it in the shop. It’s knit with Blue Sky Bulky yarn.

  6. Beautiful! What a great color to add a wonderful punch of color to all of our snow.

  7. Thanks, Mary! I agree, February always needs a little color.

  8. What a lovely pattern! I am thoroughly enjoying knitting this up in a new colour for me. Thanks so much.

  9. You’re welcome, Diane! I’m glad you’re enjoying it.

  10. Thanks for the pattern, I will definitely give it a try. I’m a beginner knitter, but this looks fairly easy 🙂
