Knitting Needle Size: 10 or 6 mm

Yarn Weight: (6) Super Bulky/Super Chunky (4-11 stitches for 4 inches)


  • Red Heart® Boutique™ Rigoletto Prints™: 1 hank 2935 Majesty
  • Susan Bates® Knitting Needles: 6mm [US 10]
  • Similar color sewing thread and
  • needle (optional)

Gauge: Gauge does not apply to this project.


FINISHED SIZE: The technique used to make this scarf does
not allow us to give exact measurements.

Untwist hank of yarn; find yarn end and stretch it out to 4”- 5” (10-13 cm) wide.
To cast on: Fold end of yarn over about 2” (5 cm) to hide raw edge. Insert knitting needle in and out along top of this folded section twice going through all thicknesses; you now have 2 stitches on your needle. Turn.
To knit: You will be stretching out yarn as you go and using the top edge of the yarn to knit with. As you knit, leave about 2” (5 cm) between each stitch and place yarn edge over needle a few threads from the top.
Row 1 (RS): Knit the 2 stitches on your needle. Turn.
Row 2: Knit 2. Turn.

Repeat Row 2 until you have 4 to 5” (10-13 cm) remaining.

Bind off as usual. Fold end under and sew with needle and thread to secure, if desired.
