Simple Bordered Scarf: a knitting pattern

Something completely different and new, this is the first knitting pattern I have ever designed!


Simple Bordered Scarf
By Maggie McGinity

Use size 8 needles and some worsted weight yarn (4 weight). You can use slightly smaller or slightly larger knitting needles if you wish, though there will be some size variations.

Cast on 36 stitches

Knit 6 rows to form horizontal border

Row 1: knit all
Row 2 knit 4, purl 28, knit 4

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until scarf is at desired length. Finish on Row 2.


Knit 6 rows to form horizontal border

Bind off


It’s so simple and wonderful! Of course, it’s just garter stitch bordering stockinette stitch, but still! I’m proud 😀


I used Caron Simply Soft in Sunset to make this scarf as a birthday present for my grandma, who turned 92 earlier this month. I’m hoping to make a PDF of all this soon and put it up on Ravelry, a mecca of knitting/crochet information and a wonderful world wide and personal database.



“the number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can’t tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.”
