Serenity Scarf – Knitting Pattern

I have another scarf pattern for you guys! This time, I thought I’d play around with knitting on the bias. If you haven’t heard of knitting on the bias, its just a fancy way of saying knitting a diagonal shape. This is done by increasing and decreasing the same number of stitches in a row so that the total stitch count remains the same, while allowing you to shape the ends of the fabric.

Knitting on the bias is also a great way for beginner knitters to practice their increases and decreases. So if you consider yourself and advanced beginner, looking for a new challenge, then you will love this pattern!


I have written out and posted the free pattern for this fun to knit winter scarf below on this page.
