How to knit a One-row stitch pattern for Scarves

Today, I’m sharing how to knit a spectacular one-row knitting pattern!

It’s fun to knit and pretty easy to memorize 😉

In fact, it involves three steps that are repeated from the beginning to the end of the project, that is, you only have to repeat row 1 all the time.


In addition, it’s identical on both sides of the fabric, which makes it perfect for knitting scarves and infinity cowls.

This one-row knitting pattern has a gorgeous texture to it, which is achieved with these two techniques:

A left-leaning increase, and a left-leaning decrease, both of them already been implemented in other tutorials.

Honestly, it’s precisely this combination that forms that unique look 😉

Finally, if you are thinking of knitting a scarf, a cowl, or any other rectangular or square garment, don’t miss this tutorial, so you can learn how to calculate how many stitches to cast on, how much yarn you need, and the measurements!

So, no more chatting…

Grab your needles and some yarn, and let’s get busy!


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

P: Purl

K: Knit

ssk: Slip one stitch as if to knit, slip the next, put them back onto the left-hand needle, and knit them together

m1L: Make one left-leaning increase. Pick up the bar between the stitch you knit and the one you’re about to knit, bringing the needle from front to back. Then knit into the back of the stitch.

BO: Bind off

For a great finish, don’t forget to block the garment once finished. This tool will be your best friend #ad


1) The first and the last stitches are selvege stitches and will be knitted on each row.

2) We’ll start working on a setup row (it will be knitted once, and won’t be repeated again).

CO multiples of 4 + 2; i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 + 2 = 18 stitches.

Setup row: K1, *K2, P2*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1.

1º and every row: K1, *ssk, m1L, P2*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1

This only row creates the pattern. Repeat it until the desired length is reached.

When finished BO working each as it presents.
