Favorite 2-sided Flat No-Brainer Stitch Patterns?

Most of my projects are flat – scarves, afghans, towels, etc. I like to knit easy stuff while I watch TV. I’m really tired of seed stitch and garter stitch.
I just started a scarf using basket stitch, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep track of the rows while watching TV. The back side isn’t the same as the front, but it is interesting and it looks like it will lay flat.
Anybody have some faves to share that meet these requirements? :grphug:

Yes! Check out the scrunchable scarf. Here is the link, http://www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftsscarf.htm

but be sure to look at this picture, since the one with the pattern doesn’t do it justice


That sounds perfect! THANK YOU. I can’t wait to try it. :hug: :heart:

This is my new favorite…one row pattern! I can’t find the link, but it was a used for a scarf. C/O multiples of 4 then add 2 more. I like easy, I have a short memory

Row 1: *knit 2, knit into the back of the next stitch, purl 1. Repeat from * till there are 2 stitches left. Knit 2.
Repeat that one row every row until you can stand it no longer, your scarf is long enough or you run out of yarn, whatever comes first.

That’s the Yarn Harlot’s One Row handspun scarf.

Great! Keep ‘em comin’. I think I’ll do a whole page of links to just this sort of thing. You guys are terrific! :happydance: :cheering:

That reminds me of tube scarves. Anybody do these anymore?

Okay, there’s some reversible st patterns at Knitting on the net.

That’s the one:thumbsup: Thanks, Sue. I copied it onto a word doc and usually add the link on it, but forgot to for some reason.

I use text files and after a while, I began putting in the links to the patterns. I’d forget what they look like or want to make sure of an instruction and couldn’t always find them again.

I have a Knitting folder in my Faves. That’s where I store all the good patterns I get from you guys. I back that puppy up, regularly. :slight_smile:

I second the One-Row Handspun Scarf. I’ve made several of them!

This is my scarf pattern and does require row counting, but if you just do the center square pattern all the way through it’s super easy!

Ooo, that looks great. I’m all done for this year, but I’ll make that one my first project for next year. :happydance:

:thumbsup:You could use that texture in just about anything. If you use a bigger needle you’d get a lacy look or smaller for a denser texture.

Some people have made blankets with it too. It’s pretty basic st pattern that can be used in lots of items.
