How to Knit a Scarf

Knitting a scarf has never been easier. Whether you’re a novice or well versed in the craft, it’s a fun project to take on. Here are the steps to make your own stylish scarf:

What You Will Need

  • Yarn
  • Knitting needles
  • A crochet hook (optional)


  1. Choose your yarn: Pick a yarn that appeals to you. There are a variety of textures, weights, and colors available to choose from.
  2. Pick your knitting needles: Pick a size of knitting needles that corresponds to your yarn. If in doubt, the yarn ball usually has the recommended needle size on the label.
  3. Create your basic knit stitch: Start by casting on the desired number of stitches, depending on the scarf’s width. Then, knit the stitches until you get to desired scarf length.
  4. Finish the scarf: When you reach the desired scarf length, you will need to bind off your stitches. This can be done by knitting two stitches, then passing the first stitch over the second and off the needle. Continue this until you have one stitch left on the needle.

Optional: Adding fringe

If desired, you can add fringe to each end of the scarf. To do this, cut a length of yarn four times the desired length. Fold the yarn in half and use a crochet hook to pull the ends through one of the first stitches at the beginning or end of the scarf. Pull the ends through the loop and pull tight, this creates a knot. Continue this for the entire length of the scarf, until your fringe looks the way you want it.


To finish, weave in any loose ends. Once your scarf is complete, you can enjoy it or give it as a gift!
