The Stacked Stitch Scarf is free with Xandy’s online video class, Stacked Stitches: Knitting in Wild Color. In this class, you’ll learn the Stacked Stitch technique with swatches and projects. Try Bluprint to take this class and many more.

About the pattern: Inspired by classic winter woolens, this scarf has a geometric motif at each end. Traditional colorwork would contain floats on the wrong side, but with stacked stitches, the wrong side is free of loops. Most of the project is plain garter stitch - easy and fast to work. A slip stitch selvage is used along each edge to keep the scarf neat. The stack section can be worked as a swatch as part of the Stacked Stitches class and teaches how to work increases and decreases in the center of a row and along both edges.
