Eyelet Scarf

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!

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!
