Fall is my busy season. It’s really the busy season for any maker who makes and sells handmade hats, scarves, cowls, and winter wear in general. It’s the time people are actually looking to buy cold weather gear.

As I was going through thinking about what styles of beanies I wanted to offer this year at my markets, I knew I wanted a simple, ribbed, knit beanie in my line up, preferably one that took one skein or less to make. I also knew I needed to be able to make it in a short enough amount of time to make it profitable… and from that came the Advent Beanie!

But what good is a hat without a matching scarf? So I set out to make an elegant, but simple scarf to match my newest beanie obsession. The Advent Scarf is super cozy, works up beautifully, and looks beautiful with any winter outfit.

Scarf Pattern Details

The Advent Scarf is a great staple knit scarf pattern. It is worked in 1 seamless piece and has a beautiful and easy ribbing that gives it texture while keeping a chic, modern feel. Plus with the option to add fringe, faux fur poms, or nothing to the bottom of your scarf, the pattern is customizable to you!

Difficulty Level

This knit scarf pattern is perfect for a beginner knitter. It uses basic stitches and is worked flat in rows, so it’s super simple! I also have pattern notes written at the beginning of the pattern that serve as helpful reminders for any of the areas that could be tricky.


Because this is a scarf pattern, it isn’t sized for multiple sized, so gauge is going to be an important piece only if you want your finished scarf to match mine in width and length. I do provide you with gauge in the pattern and I highly recommend making a gauge swatch before you get started.


This scarf comes in 1 size, however, it is a super simple pattern and can be customized to fit exactly what you’re looking for! Want it wider? Simply cast on more stitches in pairs of 2. Want it longer or shorter? Simply cast off once your desired length has been reached. My model is 5’7″ for reference.


For this knit scarf pattern I use Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick, but if you don’t have access to that yarn, any multi-ply Category 6 yarn should work! Below are some other options you can check out!

  • Lion Brand Hometown
  • Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Super Bulky
  • Bernat Softee Chunky
  • Caron Chunky Cakes
  • Caron Tea Cakes
  • Cozy Wool by Loops & Threads
  • Big Twist Natural Blend
  • Lion Brand Re-Spun Thick & Quick
  • Bernat Wool-Up Bulky
  • Patons Highland Bulky
  • Premier Mega Tweed

**On a side note, I would not recommend using a single-ply super bulky yarn like We Are Knitters the Wool or Malabrigo Rasta as those tend to be much thicker.
