This free knitting pattern for a knitted scarf was designed for a friend of mine on a recent trip to the States. The knitted scarf is designed with a central plait running down the length of the knitted scarf. This free knitting pattern produces a thick & warm scarf the length of which can be adjusted as required. This free knitting pattern for a knitted scarf includes tassels on the ends of the scarf could be left off if the plainer look is required.

Using 4 mm crochet hook make the loops for attaching the tassels. Make a slip knot and attach to one corner or scarf, [make 5 chains and slip stich back onto work a fifth of the way across scarf] repeat a further 4 times. Pass end of thread through remaining stitch and pull tight. Repeat on other end of scarf. Secure loose ends.
Make 5 x tassels for each end of the scarf. For this scarf the tassels are approximately 8cm long (3 Inches) and were prepared by wrapping the yarn around the short edge of a DVD box 10 times before securing and attaching to the loops on the scarf. Trim the ends of the tassels so that they are all the same length.
