The Kanga Ridge Scarf Is A free Knit Pattern
Needless to say, I've had the knitting needles out lately 
(pun intended, lol)
I put these knit stitches together and it came out looking fabulous!
So here I am once again to share a free pattern with you, but this time it is a knitting pattern!
The Kanga Ridge scarf pattern is full of texture and bounce!
This easy knit scarf pattern looks fabulous on both sides too
You can make the scarf with fine to bulky yarn
The pattern is a 2 row repeat, so you will have it memorized in no time!
There is a 3 stitch border on both sides, which stops your scarf from curling in.
Apart from the 3 stitch border, the pattern stitch is based on the rib stitch, purling 1 st, then a knit inc in the next stitch, this is repeated until you get to the next border. 
On the other side of the scarf and after the 3 stitch border, is a k1, then purl 2 together, repeated to the next 3 stitch border. I hope you enjoy this fund and easy scarf pattern.

Stitches used:
K, knit
P, purl
P 2 tog, purl 2 together
K inc, knit increase (knit into the back of the stitch, then knit into the front of the stitch)
Supplies, yarn and needles of your choice
Tension not required

Pattern stitch count is, any number of odd st's plus 6 more st's.

To begin: cast on your st's loosely
Row 1, k 3, p 1, *k inc (see notes), p 1* repeat from *to* to last 3 st's, k 3
Row 2, K 4, *p 2 tog, k 1* repeat from *to* to last 3 st's, k 3

Repeat rows 1 and 2 for length desired, finish with a row 2, then cast off loosely

With my scarf I use a bulky yarn, 15 mm needles, and 19 stitches, the yarn was from my stash and had no label, so I can't tell you what brand it is, sorry.

On the knit increase you knit into the back loop first rather than the front first?

Cathy Wood said...

yes, this gives the lovely texture. Cheers Cat

I'm liking the texture on this. I'm making scarves for our deployed soldiers overseas . Something easy but different is just what I'm looking for. Thanks.

Finally getting around to using this pattern. LOVE it !! What I'm most happy about is that when you said "you will have it memorized in no time!, you were right. But, it isn't just that I memorized the two rows, I can SEE them as I'm knitting. I can see where to put the purl stitches, I can SEE where the knit stitches belong, I can SEE where to knit front and back, I can SEE where to purl two together. That is such a great feeling. I am a fairly beginning knitter, but I get bored easily, so I like to choose a pattern where I'm learning, that creates an interesting effect. Thank you !!
