Jiffy Tube Scarf

Sirdar Denim Ultra

Aran

Another fast and fabulous Scarf.  Knit in a Chunky wool on 9mm needles this quick scarf is fun to knit and looks great with some funky buttons.

There are some great yarn options.

  • Sirdar Denim Ultra – Photo 1 with wooden buttons – 1 ball
  • Twilleys Freedom – Photo 2 with blue flower buttons – 2 balls
  • Tivoli Cloud – Photo 4 with flower printed buttons – 1 ball
  • Aran combo – two strands of aran wool – photo 3 with pink flower buttons.

Needle size – 9mm or 10 mm depending on yarn used.

Instructions – Cast on 21 Stitches using long tail method  and knit 3 rows.

Button hole row – knit 5 yarn forward knit 2 together, knit 3 yarn forward knit 2 together, knit 3 yarn forward knit 2 together, knit 4.

Knit until you are almost out of yarn – cast off making sure you have enough yarn left over to tidy up button holes and sew on buttons.  Finish by darning in ends and putting on buttons.

Scarf measurement – width – 8.5 inches length – 21.5 inches this is in Tivoli Cloud but could be up to 23 inches depending on yarn used.    Any longer than this and you will not have a snug fit and the scarf will droop.

  1. Hey there. I’m a VERY beginning knitter. In the button hole row, do you mean to knit 5 stitches, then do one yarn forward, then knit 2 together, knit 3 stitches, then yarn forward, etc? I’m fairly certain you do (as counting stitches, that makes 21) Thanks.
