How can something so easy look so fabulous? Nobody will believe you when you tell them its a knit!
I love this scarf so much. The pattern gives it such an interesting textured look. There’s no need to sew in the loose ends as they create the fringe. You may want to knot the tips to prevent fraying.
This scarf is knitted length-wise, not from the bottom up as most scarves are. It’s done in a seed (or moss) stitch to give the scarf more texture. I’ve used a velour type yarn, but it will work with any yarn, really. I chose this yarn simply because I liked the feel of it.
(These are simply suggestions … you can use any yarn of your choice with the corresponding size needles)
- Cast on 201 stitches using first color of choice. Use your favorite stretchy cast on method to avoid a tight edge to your scarf. (TIP: Place a stitch marker every 20 stitches to help keep count. They can be removed when knitting the first row.) Cut the yarn, leaving a 6-8 inch tail.
- 1st row: Switch to next color of choice, leaving a 6-8 inch tail at the beginning of the row. * K1, P1. Repeat from * to end of row. Cut the yarn, leaving a 6-8 inch tail.
- Repeat the first row (seed or moss stitch) until the scarf is the desired width. I kept on knitting until I ran out of one of the colors. Cast off loosely in the next color.
- Knot the loose tails together to make tassels. (This is optional. I simply knotted mine in pairs, just to make sure they are secure). You can trim them to the same length or simply leave them as is.
Wasn’t that easy-peasy? Wrap yourself up and enjoy the warm fuzzies. And all the awesome compliments that will come your way.
