Basic Elements™ Scarf or Cowl Knitting Pattern is a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD by Sandi Rosner.  You will receive your download after checkout.


Ever find yourself with a single skein of a very special yarn? Perhaps it was a gift, or you bought it as a vacation souvenir. This cowl or scarf is a great way to show off that beautiful yarn! 

Knit in a simple and completely reversible stitch pattern, your cowl or scarf will look great no matter how you twist and wrap it. While the sample shown is a longish cowl, we’ve included instructions on how to use this pattern to make either a cowl or a scarf. We’ve also added directions on customizing the length and width. 

While this is a great first project for a beginner, this is also a pattern you can turn to again and again. This is also a FABULOUS way to use a skein of hand spun yarn...whether you bought it at a fiber festival or spun it yourself!




Yarn: 300 yds DK weight yarn 

The sample was made with the following: One 4 oz bump of Hand Dyed Diva 100% Super Wash Merino Combed Top in Firepit hand spun into a DK weight 2-ply yarn. 

These quantities will make a cowl the size shown in photos. If you choose to make a longer scarf or cowl, more yarn will be needed 

Needles: US 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles, or size needed to obtain the correct gauge. 

Notions: Scrap yarn and crochet hook for provisional cast on, tapestry needle, blocking tools 


24 sts and 28 rows = 4" in Garter Rib stitch, after blocking. 

Exact gauge is not critical to the success of this project, but if you work to a different gauge it will change both the finished measurements and the amount of yarn required. 


Circumference: 45" 

Width: 7" 

These are the measurements of the sample shown. Instructions are provided to customize both the width and the circumference/length.
