I had some leftover yarn – actually 2 partial skeins leftover from making slippers and wanted to make something fun with it – the colors are great. I figured what I had leftover was not quite enough for a project so I found the same yarn and bought one more skein. The original pattern for this scarf used a more “delicate” yarn, but I liked the pattern and had the a particular yarn I wanted to use – so the knitting began!
1 – 2 skeins of yarn
Size 5 single pointed needles
Scarves are usually about 60″ long – this scarf with about 57″ and 4 1/2″ wide.
Cast on 26 stitches.
Work 6 rows in garter stitch (knit all rows)
Pattern: (this is where I use my counter)
Row 1: K4, *YO (yarn over), K2tog (knit 2 together)*, repeat * thru * until last 4 stitches, K4
Rows 2 – 8: K26
Continue the pattern until you are almost out of yarn (leave enough for 7 rows and binding off) or you are at 59″.
End with a Row 1 of the pattern.
Knit 6 rows and bind off.
Weave in all ends.
This time of year I am busy making gifts for the upcoming holiday season and even though I have many scarves and neck warmers – I think this one is a keeper for me! I am sure Stella will be sneaking it to keep her neck warm!
