Stockinette stitch creates a dense, very warm fabric ideal for a warm winterscarf. This one is finished with a crocheted edge which is not only very attractive but also helps to control the curling problem associated with knitting in stockinette stitch.
The fringing along both ends is made from 5ply yarn for a softer look.

Materials: Approximately 500grams 12ply yarn [depending on the length and width required], 1pr. 5.5mm knitting needles, 5.0mm crochet hook, 5ply yarn.

Knitted Scarf Pattern
To begin, cast on 40sts.
1st Row: Garter Stitch [Knit].
2nd Row: Purl.
Work these rows until 10 rows are completed.
11th & 12th Rows: Knit.
These 12 rows form the pattern. Continue working in pattern until you reach the desired length.
Work 3 rows of dc* around entire edge, working 2sts into every corner. Fasten off.
*Take care not to make too many stitches along long sides, as this will result in a wavy edge. Make just enough stitches that you create an even unstretched flat border. Check your first completed pattern span to ensure that your stitch count is correct.
This pattern is worked in synthetic yarn and so may be machine washed. If you choose to use wool, it is safer to hand wash.
