Free Knitting Pattern: Easy Drop Stitch Scarf!

Easy Drop Stitch Scarf - Free Knitting Pattern

Here is another quick knitting project! I used just one skein of Ozark Handspun Opulent yarn to create a lovely woolly scarf for fall. Opulent, by the way, is hand dyed and hand spun using lovely soft mohair/wool fibers with bits of curly mohair scattered throughout - truly a treat to knit with this yarn. I chose a bright color to offset my usually drab (black/grey) wardrobe.

Completed Scarf Measures: 5 x 58"

You will need:
Cast on 6 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit 1, (yarn over, knit 1). Repeat between ( ) across.
Row 3: Knit stitches and drop the yarn overs created on the previous row - you should have 6 stitches on the needle when you complete this row.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until only 1 yard of yarn remains. Bind off and weave in yarn ends. Give a gentle tug on both ends of the scarf to allow the dropped stitches to fall into place.

Three ways to wear your scarf
Photo 1: draped around your neck, Photo 2: folded in half with tails slipped through at fold, Photo 3: tied once at neck. How will you wear your scarf?

Happy knitting!


  1. Great patterns and such wonderful colours you used! Thank you for sharing!

  2. this is a beautiful scarf but i need to know if there is a crochet stitch thats similar to this one.

    1. You could get a similar look in crochet by using elongated stitches.

  3. Which colorway is this! I love it!

    1. This is color Secret Garden. :)

  4. If you were to knit a hat to go with this, is there a certain pattern you would use or just a basic knit hat in the same color?
