Confectioner scarf knitting pattern

Added to cart

Confectioner is a sweet little scarflet pattern! It’s a great project for leftover yarn and mini skeins.

It’s a quick beginner-friendly knit, with a bias shape that’s enhanced by uneven stripes reminiscent of candy canes and ribbon candy—the inspiration for its name! They’re fast and fun and keep you wanting to knit just one more stripe.

The ribbed stitch pattern means it resembles stockinette but will never curl, with a perfect transition between colors (no purl bumps showing!) that adds a subtle texture. The slipped edging gives the scarf a polished finish.

Follow the clearly-written pattern like normal, but for even more help, if you’d like to learn how to read your rows and knit the majority of your Confectioner without the pattern, watch the video guide, that comes with the pattern!

Size and Yarn Requirements

Approx. 4” / 10cm wide and 30” / 75cm long

-Color A: 80 yds / 75m

-Color B: 60 yds / 55m

Want it longer? For each additional 2 more stripes of each color (approx. 5” / 13cm more total length), you will need an extra:

-Color A: 8yds / 7m

-Color B: 6 yards / 6m

Scarf was knit using small amounts of leftover yarns, with 2 yarns held throughout: fingering weight carried with matching lace weight mohair. Required yardage above is for each strand of both colors.

If using only one strand of each color, use a DK weight for similar gauge and finished size.

However, any weight of yarn or combination of yarns would be lovely. Get creative!

Yarn used for samples

Color A (red, from red/white version):

-Yarn 1 (fingering weight) - La Bien Aimee Merino Single (400yds / 366m per 100g)

-Yarn 2 (lace weight) - La Bien Aimee Mohair Silk (547yds / 500m per 50g)

Color A (pink, from pink/white version):

-Yarn 1 (fingering weight) - Hedgehog Fibers Sporty Single (328yds / 300m per per 3.5oz / 100g skein)

-Yarn 2 (lace weight) - Hedgehog Fibers Alpaca Boucle (678yds / 620m per per 3.5oz / 100g skein)

Color B (white):

-Yarn 1 (fingering weight) - Quince & Co. Finch (221yds / 202m per 50g)

-Yarn 2 (lace weight) - Hobbii Diablo (246yds / 225m per 25g)


32 sts / 32 rows = 4” / 10cm in * k1, p1 * ribbing (i.e. 1x1 rib), using 3.5mm (US 4) needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.

Gauge is not critical for this project! Even between the 2 samples knit, row gauge was a smidge different.

However, smaller needles than normal are recommended for the weight of yarn, for a firmer fabric in the stitch pattern.

Keep this in mind if changing weight of yarn used.
