Sweet Knit Scarflette

This sweet little scarflette is perfect for those colder spring nights when a full scarf is just too much.  It works up quickly and is so easy to make.  This scarflette is made using a baby cable stitch, but you can simply knit each row if you’re new to knitting.  If you want to give the cable stitch a try (it’s really quite easy!), this is a great project to practice with.  You won’t need a cable needle, but you will need knitting needles that allow for knitting two stitches together (I recommend a bigger size, like 10 or 11 US sized needles).

Sweet Scarflette


  • Pair of 10 or 11 sized needles
  • Yarn (I used Red Heart Gold yarn.  It wasn’t a full skein, so you can easily make this with leftover yarn)
  • Large Button
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle


  1. Cast on 42 stitches.  If you want it to be larger or smaller, cast on in multiples of 4 stitches, plus 2 extra stitches at the end.
  2. Row 1:  Knit 2, *Pearl 2, Knit 2; repeat from * to end of row.
  3. Row 2:  Pearl 2, *Knit 2, Pearl 2; repeat from * to end of row.
  4. Row 3:  As row 1.
  5. Row 4:  Pearl 2, *Knit 2 stitches together, leaving on needles.  Insert your right needle between the two stitches you just knitted together and knit the first stitch on the left needle again.  Then drop both stitches off needle. Pearl 2; repeat from * to end of row.
  6. Repeat Rows 1-4 until your scarflette is about 31 inches long.  Bind off.
  7. Sew your button on one corner of the right side of the work.  I just used some extra yarn to attach the button.
  8. Braid or crochet a loop for the button.  It should be about 5-6 inches long.  Use a tapestry needle to weave it into the scarf, tying it securely on the wrong side of the work.
  9. And there you have a fun and cozy scarflette!  As I’ve said, you can use a basic knit stitch if you find the cable too difficult.  These fun little accessories also make great gifts for Mother’s Day!
