We are loving this Celtic Knot Loop Scarf Pattern and you will too! If you are a fan of the braided Celtic Knot but have never attempted the full knit cable, then this project will be of interest.
This simple and beautiful version uses straightforward knit stitches and braiding. This Scarf isn’t only gorgeous, it’s easy to make too!
The beauty of this pattern is that you don’t need to be an advanced knitter to make it. Anyone, including beginners, can make this lovely scarf using only the stockinette (knit/purl) stitch. You could also combine other stitches into the scarf as many have done in those featured in this post.
There are many different takes on the pattern. You can use a single color or a two-tone version, as shown below. It’s such a fun pattern so don’t be afraid to get creative.

Celtic Knot Loop Scarf Pattern Instructions
The free pattern above from Trish Everett shows you how to make the basic scarf that every pattern we’ve shown on this page uses. She gives great step-by-step photos so you get a good visual on how to put the braided part together.
She recommends using any type of yarn with appropriate size knitting needles. To make the version above she used 2 balls of Rowan Lima in Machi Pichu (100 grams, 200 meters) on size 10 needles. You can find this patternhere
This version is available as a free Ravelry download and uses the same basic braided method. It is important to note the type of yarn and needles you use however when it comes to the braiding. As one Ravelry user put it:
The length of the first 4 strips should be just about equal to the width of your scarf so when you loop the scarf around and weave the second set of strips to form the knot, you don’t end up with a saggy loose mess.
You can find the free download on Ravelry.
