Manly Scarf #8: Knotted Rib Scarf

The newest pattern in the Manly Scarf Series has just been posted on Ravelry. You can download the free pattern pdf there.

Like all the other scarves in this series, this one is free too. Just a small way for me to say, “Thanks for supporting my designs!”

The pattern stitch is from the Harmony Guides 450 Knitting Stitches V2 (2004) – Knotted Rib pattern and I’ve added a 4-stitch moss border on either side.

If you just want a quick peek, here’s the pattern worked over 38 sts:

Row 1 {RS}: {k1, p1} twice; p2, *kfb, p4; repeat from * to last 7 sts; kfb, p2, {k1, p1} twice

Row 2: {p1, k1} twice; k2, *p2tog, k4; repeat from *to last 8 sts; p2tog, k2, {p1, k1} twice

All abbreviations, yarn requirements, sizes, etc. are in the pdf on the website.

Dec 11/09 edit:
k – knit;
p – purl;
kfb – knit into front and back of the same stitch (makes 2 stitches out of 1);
p2tog – purl 2 stitches together

Since it is mainly purl on the RS and knit on the WS, it does have a tendency to curl along the scarf, so blocking is in order.

Both the RS and WS provide a nice face.
