How to knit a chunky scarf (14 stitches only!)

Today, I’m sharing how to knit a chunky scarf, so quick to knit, that you wouldn’t believe it 😉

It’s knitted in a gorgeous lace stitch, with 14 stitches only; the yarn is so thick, that one repeat is enough to get the total width.

Moreover, it’s a six-row repeat pattern, two of which are the same… pretty fun to knit.

However, you can use this pattern to knit different projects, such as a blanket, a hat, or even a sweater or a cardigan.

So, let’s knit a swatch before you start your chunky scarf, so you get familiar with the pattern (or can calculate how many stitches to cast on in case your yarn is thinner).

Measurements of the finished scarf

Width: 9 3/4 in (25 cm)

Length: 59 in (150 cm) 


14 st = 25 cm

Materials (what I used for the scarf)

3 skeins (600 gr.) of super bulky wool yarn  (100% Peruvian wool, soft, warm, ad cozy) #ad

Scissors, measurement tape or rule, and tapestry (darning) needle to weave in the ends.

US 17 (12 mm) rosewood knitting needles #ad

CO: Cast on

st: St

K: Knit

yo: Yarn over

P: Purl

p2tog: Purl two stitches together

M5: Make 5. Into the same stitch K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.

p3tog: Purl three stitches together

ssk: Slip, slip, knit. Slip one stitch knitwise, slip the next, place both back onto the left-hand needle, and knit them together.

k2tog: Knit two stitches together

BO: Bind off


If you’re knitting with a thinner yarn, please note that for the lace pattern, you’ll need to cast on multiples of 12 + 2 (edge/selvage) stitches.

The odd rows form the right side of the work.

The edge/selvage stitches (the first and the last) will be knitted on each odd row, and purled on the even rows.

After the first row, the stitch count changes. We’ll end up with 8 more stitches per repeat.

Then, after the fifth row, we’ll end up with four stitches more per repeat.

Finally, after the sixth row, we’ll get back to the original number.

CO 14 st (don’t make it too tight, I used two needles at the time, and the long tail cast-on method).

1º row (RS): K1 (edge), *yo, p2tog, [yo, p2tog, M5] twice, [yo, p2tog] twice*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1 (edge). 20 st remain.

2º and 4º rows: P1 (edge), *yo, p2tog, [yo, p2tog, P5] twice, [yo, p2tog] twice*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, P1 (edge).

3º row: K1 (edge), *yo, p2tog, [yo, p2tog, K5] twice, [yo, p2tog] twice*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1 (edge).

5º row: K1 (edge), *yo, p2tog, [yo, p2tog, ssk, K1, k2tog] twice, [yo, p2tog] twice*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1 (edge). 16 st remain.

6º row: P1, *yo, p2tog, [yo, p2tog, p3tog] twice, [yo, p2tog] twice*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, P1 (edge). 14 st remain.

These six rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished, BO knitwise after row 6 (RS).

Weave in the ends, block your garment, and enjoy your new scarf!
