FREE PDF Knitting Pattern – Frilled City Scarf

It’s May already… and you know what this means? It’s the month of my 10k run!!!

Today, I would like to share with you my latest FREE knitting pattern called “Frilled City Scarf”.

C&C's latest free charity knitting pattern :D

C&C's latest free charity knitting pattern πŸ˜€

The pattern includes 2 versions: medium length to wear as above and the long version for those who would like to do the European loop (I found a webpage to show you how you can wear scarf here).

A nice not-so-wide scarf, ideal for cold sunny days in the city.

You can see I am totally into frill knitting at the moment. I based the main scarf pattern as the leaf motif. Bobbles are added to make them look like red fruit stuck on the leaves πŸ˜€

This brings back lots of my fond childhood memories of red fruit plants like lantern plants in Japan. I think wearing accessories should makes you happy as much as make you look good.

Usually knitting a scarf for a gift is a long process but this pattern is a fun and quick knit and is ideal for a gift.

    Oh my! That’s an absolutely brilliant pattern! What a lovely scarf, Kyoko! The frills give it just the perfect chic detail! Btw, I had no idea that there were so many ways to wear a scarf!!

    Kudos on your running this month, I’m sure you’ll do great!

    Oh, btw, macro photos are close up photos, with a big focus on the small details. Here’s an article about it!

      Thanks for the link about macro photos. That is totally amazing. I like it very much. It must require good lens to do this.

    LOVE the scarf Kyoko–the ruffly frill is fantastic! It may be spring, but I’m still wearing a scarf often! Hope all goes well with your race! We’re leaving for our trip early next week, but I’ll try to pop by here again… Happy Day :o) ((HUGS))

      Hi Tracy!
      Aw, thank you. You must be so excited about the trip. We may be going to NY next month (though not confirmed). Hope you have a wonderful time πŸ˜€ Do please take lots of photos.

    Hi Kyoko

    Thanks so much for the new design, SO excited to get started!!! I am trying to figure the pattern before I start, what do the grey squares mean?

    By the way my husband LOVES the scarf I knitted from the extra warm mens scarf pattern.


    • kyoko

      Hi Rihzia,
      Sorry for the late reply! The grey square means it is not knitted (i.e. it’s not a stitch).
      Hope this makes sense.
      Soooo thrilled to hear that your husband likes the scarf! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much!

    Hello everyone!

    First, I want to say how cute this scarf is πŸ™‚
    Second, I’m having great difficulty getting started on this pattern. Could someone give me basic directions? I understand how to do all the squares, but I don’t understand how to read the panels. Also, it says CO 101 sts and in parenthesis, 6 sets of 14 sts plus 3 sts, which only = 87 so I’m confused on that to begin with. haha I’m just confused over all. Please HELP πŸ™‚

      Hi Lydia,
      Thank you for the comment. You have actually found an error (I will do a correct version this weekend).
      The pattern should say 7 sets of 14 sts plus 3 sts. This would make 101 sts.
      Structurally you first cast on 101 sts and work on the frills. By decreasing sts, you would have the frills. When you are ready to work on the main part of the scarf, you should have 31 sts. Then finally work on the frills again but in the opposite direction (there is a tutorial about how they are worked here).
      Regarding the chart, there are abbreviations and keys but generally the gray shaded area is not knitted (i.e. there is no stitch there). If you ever get stuck, you can always e-mail me (if you could take an image of your knitting to describe the problem that would help me too).
      Hope this helps.

        Thank you for such a quick response πŸ™‚
        So I’m less confused now but when working the panels, such as A, I go from right to left on row 1, then for the wrong side would I k3, p12 x7, k3? then work row 2 from right to left? Thank you again Kyoko.

    Error: I meant (k3, p12) x7, k3

    Hi there! I love this scarf and have been trying it out to no avail!
    On Panel A row 3, i keep having extra 3 stitches at the end, i do not know why. I keep track of every stitch and have been counting. There are no mistakes, so I do not understand what’s wrong…pls help!
    Also, for the grey squares, i imagine that because of the decreasing in row 1, those squares are thus no longer there fr stitching?

    • Kyoko

      Hi Ann!
      Thank yo so much for your comment. I am thrilled that you are working on the scarf.
      You should have 3 sts at the end like those 3 purl stitches at the beginning of the row. Do you have 3 more stitches after that?
      If you have a chance, you can send me a picture (info”at” so that I can have a look.
      There should be a total of 101 sts (which includes 7 x 14 sts plus 3 sts – sorry the pattern says 6 x 14). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am here to help πŸ˜‰
      Happy knitting!
