Need help identifying a scarf knit pattern
Hey! I'm brand new to the forum and just got back into knitting after a hiatus of about 30 years! Long time ago, I knitted a scarf that appears to be stockinette stitch, but it is the same on both sides. I've been practicing to see if I can re-create it, but so far no luck. It is not all k, nor all p, nor k one row and p one row.

Could anyone help me?

Thanks so much!!

You probably used a technique called double knit where you knit 1, slip 1 on all rows. This produces a kind of pocket and the knit face will be on both side and the purl faces will be facing each other on the inside of the 'pocket'. I think the Advanced Techniques page or Tips has a video for it, and you can use a single color, doesn't have to be 2 colors or 2 strands of yarn.

Thanks suzeeq, but I know that's not what I did as I've never gotten that advanced. I know that it's just a very basic stitch pattern.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Thanks,

SD

Sometimes a simple k1, p1 rib can look like stockinette because the purls recede and only the knits show. Could it be that?

Reversible / Both Sides the Same?
Garter stitch? You would probably remember this so...

Ribbed? Stretch it out side to side and see.

Seed stitch?
row 1: k1, p1 across with (I think) odd number of stitches?
row 2: k the p's and p the k's.


Oh! I remember a visual stitch dictionary on-line. Let me find the link!

Finally found it at knittingfool.com

You got it!
MarigoldinWA - you are absolutely correct!! I just now figured it out. It was thin wool and small needles and you didn't really see the ribbed effect until you pulled the scarf apart cross wise! You are a smart one, indeed.

Happy knitting.
