Super Scarf Pattern

Super Scarf Knitting Pattern

At I Like Knitting, we have seen that the popularity of scarves has stayed strong throughout 2016, so the innovation has continued. The Craft Yarn Council and its thriving community of passionate yarn experts have created a template for a magnificently colossal scarf that—literally—dwarfs regular scarves. This collaboration has resulted in I Like Knitting’s version of the Super Scarf, which is 10 inches wide, 84 to 120 inches long, and 100 percent full of trendy appeal. Just for comparison, your average scarf is about six to eight inches wide and 70 to 80 inches long—meaning the Super Scarf is over one and a half times larger! The bulky, bundled look of this style takes scarves from being a simple accessory to being the star of an outfit. This new fashion trend is everything a knit piece should be: cozy, eye-catching, and comfortable all at the same time. Thanks to the ground-breaking design, the beautiful stitching is on full display, and the sleek tassels lighten the entire look.

You will need:

US Size 17 Knitting Needles (12.75 mm)

5 skeins Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Fisherman (Approx 474 yards)


Tapestry Needle to weave in ends


Scarf measures 90” (without fringe) and approximately 10” wide


2.5 stitches/inch, gauge is not important for this pattern

Notes: Slip the first stitch of each row in order to keep a straight edge


CO 25 stitches

Row 1 Knit across row

Row 2 *P1, k1b* Repeat from * to * across row. Purl last stitch of row.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until your scarf measures 90” long.

Cast off, weave in ends.


Cut 44 lengths of yarn 20” long each.  Holding two together, fold in half and attach to end of scarf. Place evenly along each end of the scarf for a total of 11 tassels (made up of two lengths of yarn) on each end. Trim to make a clean, straight edge along ends of the tassels.

Now, head over to the October issue of I Like Knitting to learn how to style your super scarf!

  • Hello: Is there any possible way you can make your free patterns downloadable? I don’t have a way to get this pattern. Thanks anyway,

  • What does it mean to “slip the first stitch of each row” to keep a straight edge? Do you not knit or purl the stitch?

  • Oh, love this pattern! I’m tall and can carry this off well! Thanks for the pattern!

    • k1b = “knit one below” insert your right needle through the stitch below the first st on the left needle, bring the yarn through and lift st off left needle.
