Bienno Scarf with Pockets Knitting Pattern Easy Fold Up Ends!

The Bienno is a cozy scarf with pockets knitting pattern. This easy knitting pattern uses simple stitches and techniques for a relaxing knit. 

This knit pattern is beginner friendly and free here on the blog. The scarf features basketweave pockets, and a ribbing stitch that is uber cuddly.

The super bulky yarn means this scarf knits up quick! I think the Bienno would make a lovely gift this season.

The Yarn

For this pocket scarf I use #6 super bulky yarn. The scarf in the picture is knit with Paintbox Simply Chunky in the yummy soft fudge color.

You can substitute another #6 super bulky yarn. I highly recommend Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease Thick & Quick. It has a touch of wool for warmth!

Construction

This scarf pattern is knit flat. You’ll begin with a section of the basketweave stitch and then knit the main scarf in uneven rib. Please note the ribbed section is narrow due to it’s stretchy nature. You’ll then finish with another section of basketweave. These you will fold over and seam to make the pockets.

Measurements taken after pockets are seamed up; ribbing is unstretched, and unblocked.

*Remember to add more yarn if you make changes.

To adjust the width of your scarf (and pockets) add or subtract in 4s to my start number.  

To change the length, adjust the number of rows of the main ribbing section.

You can also make the pockets taller or shorter by repeating or  leaving off a 4 row repeat.
