Knitting Pattern: Not-Exactly-Garter-Stitch Scarf

This scarf was literally my first full project. The stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch sections are small enough to keep the scarf from rolling, but it's not as boring as ordinary garter stitch. Sooner or later, I'll create the "neckwarmer" version.

Here's the pattern:

Not-Exactly-Garter-Stitch Scarf
Easy Stockinette/Reverse Stockinette Scarf

Yarn: GGH Savanna (50 g, 80 yds), 2 skeins. I have no idea what the color is, besides "green" -- I knit this scarf several years ago and no longer have the band.
Gauge: 4¼ sts = 1” in St st on U.S. size 9 (5.5 mm) needles
Needles: U.S. size 9 (5.5 mm), 1 pair

Cast on 20 stitches. Work three rows stockinette stitch and three rows reverse stockinette stitch as follows:

  • Row 1: Knit
  • Row 2: Purl
  • Row 3: Knit
  • Row 4: Knit
  • Row 5: Purl
  • Row 6: Knit

Work this pattern until scarf is the desired length, ending on a Row 3 or a Row 6.

Bind off all stitches.
