Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Scarf


Mimic the look of the mistake rib knitting stitch pattern by combining stitches of different heights and working in the back loop. This beginner-friendly pattern makes a fabulously warm and stretchy unisex scarf. (It’s also a one-skein project in Lion Brand Scarfie!)

I also have a matching hat pattern, Faux Mistake Rib Watchman’s Cap in 8 sizes.

Skills used
Basic crochet stitches: chain, half double crochet, slip stitch

About undergroundcrafter

My name is Marie Segares, and I’m the Proprietress of Underground Crafter. I learned to crochet from my maternal grandmother in 1984, and I’ve been hooked ever since. She tried to teach me to knit, too, but that was far less successful. In 2010, I finally conquered my fear of knitting, and I haven’t looked back since. (Don’t tell the knitting, but crochet is still my favorite!). I make hot process soap, quilt, sew, and embroider from time to time, too. I also do my fair share of cooking and love to bake. You may be wondering about the Underground Crafter name. I’m not part of a secret society of crafters (though that would be pretty cool), but I do crochet and knit underground quite a bit while commuting on New York City’s subway system.
