Steep Diagonal Men’s Scarf

Steep Diagonal Men’s Scarf

By Kristen Mangus

Learn how to knit the Steep Diagonal Scarf from the Men’s Interchangeable Scarf collection of patterns by Yarnspirations on needles OR loom! get the pattern here and also watch the tutorial.  The Loom Knit Steep Diagonal Men’s Scarf video shows and talks about converting the pattern from needles.  Its a good one to help understand how to convert or tweak a pattern to be loom knit instead of needle.  I hope this helps.  Enjoy!

This Men’s Scarf collection is packed with 6 scarf patterns featured! I chose Version I, which is a Steep Diagonal stitch pattern. The diagonal created is a high angle, which is a striking feature versus a standard rib or banded design. It is flattering to the wearer, forcing your eye to make contact. *Dreamy results may ensue*!

This video features the pattern in a chunky version using Bernat Softee Chunky yarn. The original pattern set calls for Caron Simply Soft, which is a smaller gauge and lovely but today we are beef-ing it up for your man. (Pardon my expression but I do live in Texas, y’all).

The Softee Chunky yarn gives the diagonal stripes a bold and larger statement while the cuddle factor goes into overdrive. Make this scarf for yourself or your guy today!

We will cast on with only 12 stitches, which makes this a quicker knit. Links and supplies are below. (This is a multiple of 6 if you’d like to use a Zippy Loom for a Jumbo Knit)

The Stitch.

The stitch pattern is a 6-stitch repeat.  That means you need a multiple of 6 to work this pattern. It is a series of knit and purl stitches. In the video I start slow on the first few purl and knit stitches then speed up a little afterward. The stitch pattern is achieved over 12 rows so I wanted to cover all of them for your benefit.

If you need a slower video on the main stitches or techniques, please check out my slower tutorials on GoodKnit Kisses YouTube playlist.

What helped me most in this pattern is a mantra sounding like a waltz of 1 2 3, 1 2 3.  I love how working with yarn can feel like a dance! Please dance along with me in knitting up YOUR own scarf today!
