Hello from Amsterdam!
I’m very excited to blog about this pink scarf that I made for myself because I am very excited about the scarf. I’ve been wearing it everywhere, and not just because it’s cold outside. This scarf is so fun and cutesy and soft and warm and I made it for myself all by myself.
- Two or three balls of bulky yarn
- Size 8 (5.0mm) knitting needles
- Needle for weaving in the ends
- Cast on 25 stitches
- Rows 1-4: Knit.
- Row 5: *Knit 2 together, yarn over; repeat from * until 1 stitch remains on left needle, knit 1.
- Rows 6-9: Knit.
- Rows 10, 12, 14: Purl.
- Row 11, 13: Knit.
- Repeat these 14 rows, ending with row 9, until scarf is the desired length.
- Cast off.
Here are four fun ways to wear this fancy-dancy scarf when you’re walking across European bridges :
In addition to being pretty, the stripes of garter stitch help keep the scarf from rolling too much, which is what happens when you make a whole scarf out of stockinette stitch (like the one that I made for my boyfriend a few posts back).
I hope you’re staying warm wherever you are out there in the world.
