Easy knit scarf patterns for beginners

Cable Knit Scarf Pattern
Cables are very popular patterns in many knit projects, from sweaters and hats to shawls and scarves. For this project, you will need the cast on technique, cable needle to make the cable stitch and knit and purl stitches. You can make the cable pattern on one side of the scarf for a start and then with time, be able to make cables on both sides of the scarf. Tutorials are available online.
Seed Stitch Knit Scarf Pattern
The seed stitch pattern is basically made up of single knits and purls, which horizontally and vertically alternate between each other. An even number of stitches is needed for the seed stitch. You will mostly have to alternate between knitting and purling throughout the project. The purls will look like bumps once the project is finished. The good thing is that this pattern is reversible.
Block and Tackle Knit Scarf Pattern
The block and tackle pattern produces a two color scarf. You can use slipped stitches for a start to make it easier for you to coordinate the colors.
These three patterns are fun, as well as not so difficult to learn and master. Start your scarf project with any one of these beautiful patterns.
