Basic Scarf Pattern For A Child

Basic Scarf Pattern For A Child

This basic scarf for a child can be made in two lengths: Short and Long.

What you need

Needles size 7 1/2
2.5 oz – 4.5 oz (75-125g) of 5-8 ply wool


The picture above shows a scarf made with Cha Cha or Feather knitting Yarn.

For a short scarf knit with 2.5 oz (75 g) for a long scarf use 4.5 oz (125 g).

Cast on 10 stitches and knit till desired length is reached.

Using 20 20 cm lengths of wool tie into the end row of each end of the scarf. This will create tassels on the ends. (not shown in picture).

If you are using a Cha Cha Knitting Yarn keep in mind it will stretch both in length and in width.

    I’ve checked every knitting needle conversion chart available to me and can’t find 71/2 on any of them, so I will have to guess and hope it works out.

  2. Seems like a quick project. Just confused by needle size 7 1/2. Never heard of that size.

  3. LOVED IT! I am eleven too and could understand it. I didn’t know how many stiches you needed to have for a scarf. So yeah.. I always have some random shape.

    Thank you very much it is very detailed.
