This openwork rib stitch has a nice blend of lace and structure, which makes it great for a scarf. The stitch is easy to memorize, too. I used some leftover yarn to make a small scarf, of course you could easily make a longer scarf by using up more yardage.

Finished Measurements: 32 inches by 6 inches

Yarn: worsted weight; sample knit with most of a skein (about 150 yds.) of Lionbrand Wool-Ease, Ranch Red

Needle Size: US 9 / 5.5mm


st = stitch

K = knit

P = purl

YO = yarn over (increase)

k2tog tbl = knit two stitches together through the back loops (decrease)

p2tog = purl two stitches together (decrease)


Cast on 28 st.

Row 1: K2, YO, k2tog tbl; repeat across

Row 2: P2, YO, p2tog; repeat across

Repeat these two rows until scarf is desired length or you run out of yarn.

Wash and block.
