Scarf Knitting Patterns
A scarf is an ideal knitting project in many ways. One size fits all. A scarf is much easier than a sweater, and makes a great gift. A scarf is a chance to try out new techniques like lace knitting. And for the beginner knitter, a knitted scarf is a good step in between the washcloth and something trickier.
You'll find a couple of free scarf knitting patterns here on Tricksy Knitter: the Montgomery Scarf and the Fitzgerald Scarf. Both of these are suitable for the beginner knitter in that they use basic techniques plus one or two intermediate stitch patterns, like knit-2-together and slip stitches. Or you could take any of the knitting stitch patterns in the free Washcloth Quartet or the Bookmark Trio, and cast on extra stitches and turn those into scarves.

Scarf knitting patterns for sale online
I know free patterns are great, but it also feels great to support an independent designer by buying one of their patterns. Here a couple of links for scarf knitting patterns for sale online, but for more, check out Ravelry for popular scarves.
The Flutter Scarf is one of my favorites. Mine's the photo 2nd from the left. The photo doesn't show the delicacy of the pattern or the yarn. The yarn, one of my favorite fingering weight hand dyed yarns, is Fiona from Sweatermaker Yarns, 50% mulberry silk 50% merino. Check out the Miriam Felton's other knitting patterns.
