As you know if you have been paying attention to the blog this week, we’re highlighting some of Marly’s best knit and crochet video tutorials. For example, we shared her video for the beautiful butterfly crochet cowl pattern. After that, we shared her video tutorial for the boho crochet cape free pattern. Basically, we’re on a mission to make sure that don’t miss some of those old patterns that might be hidden in the archives but are way too terrific not to craft! So today we’ve got another one for you, and this one’s for the knitters. It’s a ribbed knit scarf free pattern. This thick, reversible, unisex design is truly perfect for everyone.
A Note on the Pattern Designers
We wanted to point out that Marly Bird was a Red Heart ambassador and now, since Yarnspirations took over Red Heart, she’s a Yarnspirations ambassador. She has a lot of her own original patterns free on the Yarnspirations site. Plus she has lots of YouTube tutorials showing you details for those patterns. But that’s not all she does. She also works with them to create video tutorials for other people’s patterns. She’s such a wonderful teacher that it’s a great way to bring some of those other patterns to life. So, for example, the aforementioned butterfly cowl was originally designed by Michele Maks. So is this ribbed knit scarf free pattern we’re sharing with you today.
Who to Knit This Scarf For
This ribbed knit scarf free pattern really is the perfect item for pretty much everyone in your life. It’s reversible so it’s nice and thick.

How to Knit This Scarf
You’ll see exactly what you need to do when you watch the video below. However, we have to tell you just how easy this knit scarf is.
Basically, you’re going to knit 7 and then purl 7 across a row. Then in the next row you’ll purl your knits and knit your purls. That’s more or less it. Of course, there is a little more detail to it than that. So don’t just do that without reading the pattern and watching the video. However, if you can handle that, you can handle knitting this scarf.
