So just what is a super scarf besides being a very trendy accessory this year? They’re kind of a blanket scarf and shawl scarf all wrapped up in one. I like the idea of a blanket scarf/shawl. Haha You can wrap this big lush scarf around your head, neck and shoulders to keep warm and cozy on those blustery days.
It’s simply a scarf that is knit much bigger and wider than your typical scarf almost like a rectangle shawl. So what size makes it a super size? Plan on knitting your super scarf at least 10 – 15 inches wide and anywhere from 84 – 120 inches long.
OK confession time. My scarf isn’t as long as it should be. I was only able to make it 75 inches long. You see I have severe carpal tunnel in both my hands and this knitting project was really tough so I knit it as long as I could and then had to stop. My knitting intentions were good but my hands gave out on me.
Just a note here: While this is a super scarf knitting pattern, you can make it any size you like. It doesn’t have to be a super size. Any way you want to knit it, it will look wonderful and cozy. You decide what you’re happy with.
You can use any type of yarn to knit your scarf. I made mine with a super bulky yarn although you can use worsted weight or chunky as well. It’s up to you and what you want your scarf to look like.
This super scarf is made with the waffle stitch so that you can practice the waffle stitch pattern and create something warm and snugly. It’s a lovely pattern too.
