Rustic Potato Chip Scarf - Fun & Easy To Knit

Knitters call them potato chip scarfs because they're very addictive. Like potato chips, you can't just eat one.

I have seen many potato chip scarf patterns and photos all over the web recently. Some are crochet and some are knitted. I adopted this pattern from one of the patterns I found on the internet.

In this pattern, I used wrapping technique to keep stitches together when turning and helped prevent big gaps. It also helped prevent lumpy knots to form at the turning points. Sounds confusing? Let's just get right to the pattern then.

Potato Chip Scarf Skill Level: Easy

Measurement: Width = 4.5 inches. Lenght = 60 inches (measured at the center part from end to end).

Gauge: Not very important. It's about 4.75 stitches per inch on US #9.


1. 2 balls (50gm each) of DK Weigh Yarn of your choice. I used Italian 100% Superwash wool in Rustic color. It's about $8.00 per skein but I got it on sale for half of the price, yeah!

2. A pair of knitting needle US#9 (I used slightly bigger needle than what suggested for this yarn gauge because I want it to be a little loose.)


Cast on 20 stitches.

Row 1: K.

Row 2: K 8, sl 1, yf, turn work.

Row 3: Sl 1, k to the end.

Row 4: K 6, sl 1, yf, turn work.

Row 5: Sl 1, k to the end.

Row 6: K 4, sl 1, yf, turn work.

Row 7: Sl 1, k to the end.

Repeat row 1 to row 7 until almost run out of yarn. Bind off all stitches.

Knitting Abbreviation and Knitting Term used in this pattern

K = knit

Sl = slip

Yf = yarn forward

Turn work

= Flip your work over, so that your right hand is on the left. Start knitting off your left-hand needle as usual.
