Moss Stitch Scarf - Beginners

 This is a very easy reversible scarf that can be knitted on large needles (8mm) for a loose, soft effect or on smaller needles (4mm) for a firmer finish more like a woven item. The choice of yarn and size of needles combination is endless.

Cast on an odd number of stitches to suit the finished width that you want.
This is the basic repeat pattern for each row of the scarf.
*Knit 1, Purl 1, Knit 1* repeat to end of row
Continue until scarf is required length and cast off loosely with larger size needles.

 Basic scarf: 8 ply DK wool; 6mm needles; cast on 31 stitches

Tip: To keep a straight edge to the scarf and a neat finish, slip one stitch at the start of each row.

Thanks for this easy guide. I had some wool left over and just wanted an example of something easy I could do with it, found this, and now have a lovely warm purple moss stitch scarf and am working on one in blue/greys

I've tried to knit a moss stitch scarf in panels, 6 and 2 plain and repeat but it hasn't worked. Isn't the Internet fantastic. I've had to forgo my original idea and now I've found yours thank you . It looks fabulous and so soft in cashmere
