KNIT: Less than $20 Easy Wool Scarf
October 4, 2009
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to put this easy scarf up on the site. You will giggle because it’s so simple.
First you need 2 skeins of Darn Good Yarn’s Thick and Thin Wool Yarn (which I call the yo-yo diet) http://store.darngoodyarn.com/search?q=thick+and+thin You’re going to use up both skeins in their entirety for this scarf but you will get an ample scarf that goes together quick!
The second thing you need are US size 13 needles.
Now, cast on 9 or 11 stitches. You can choose depending on the width of the scarf you’d like. Me, well I like a longer scarf so I can wrap it more or tie it around my head then around my neck if it’s super chilly.
Ok, so you’re then going to knit 1 and purl 1 to the end for every row (yes moss stitch…can you tell I’m addicted to it?) It’s great if you’re just learning because you can practice practice practice!
I love this yarn because while the stitch is easy and you can zone out you end up with a very interesting texture. It reminds me of pebbles.
What a great, cost-effective, beautiful gift you can make in a snap this holiday season!
