It’s getting colder! I’m not mentally prepared for winter, but at least I managed to finish knitting my seed stitch scarf.

The seed stitch scarf is the second in my chunky scarf series. It is easy to knit, so it’s also a perfect beginner project. I made the scarf lie flat by slipping the first stitch of each row.

The seed stitch scarf is very warm and cozy. It’s also extra long, so you could wrap it around your neck a couple of times.

I used Lion Brand’s Lion’s Pride Woolspun yarn in Sea Mist Mix, but you could use any color that you want.

If you’re ready to knit a seed stitch scarf, then this project is for you.

Here are the instructions:

Seed Stitch Scarf


materials for the seed stitch scarf

3 balls Lion Brand Lion’s Pride Woolspun (3oz/85g; 108yd/99m; 80% acrylic, 20% wool) in Sea Mist Mix (this yarn has been discontinued, but you can find a substitute here)

2 US 10.5 (6.5mm) straight or double point needles (DPNs)

tapestry needle or crochet hook


gauge: 8 stitches/2” (5cm) (13 rows/2” (5cm)) in seed stitch pattern

dimensions (approximate): 9” (23cm) w x 55” (140 cm) l


CO – cast-on

RS – right side

WS – wrong side

Sl – slip stitch off the needle

K – knit

P – purl

BO – bind off

Note: The Woolspun yarn has 12 plies, so it has a very soft drape. Any fabric knitted with this yarn will expand a few inches after washing and blocking. Therefore, please keep this in mind when you are knitting the scarf.

Also, when you add another ball of yarn, add it at the beginning of the row you are knitting.


CO 35 stitches using the long-tail cast-on method.

Row 1 (RS): Sl1, *P1, K1, *continue until the end of row.

Row 2 (WS): repeat Row 1.

Continue knitting in pattern until you have a little bit of yarn left. Add a new ball of yarn.

Continue knitting in pattern until you have a little bit of yarn left. Add the final ball of yarn.

Continue knitting in pattern until you run out of yarn.

BO then cut off excess yarn.

Wash and block scarf.

Your scarf should look like this:
