How to Make a Hand-Knit Scarfcomments (10) September 14th, 2012
This trendy, furry, knit scarf accommodates many types of yarn. The stitches may be simple, but the end result is anything but! And with these simple instructions, you can make enough scarves to diminish your extravagant yarn stash, and what's better, the more scarves you make, the more you can give.
The yarns make this scarf special. The knitting is easy: you just need to create four sections and then repeat as described in the following steps for the scarf length you desire. For clarity, we used plain yarns in the step-by-step photos.
Things You'll Need:
Size 13 knitting needles
1 ball ladder yarn
1 ball eyelash yarn
1 ball feather yarn
1 ball ribbon yarn
1 ball microfiber yarn
Step 1: Garter Stitch
Cast on 15 to 22 stitches, depending on how wide you want the scarf. Don't worry about gauge. With ribbon and eyelash yarns together, knit six rows of garter stitch (knit every row). After each section, cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch tail. Tie on the next yarn, also leaving a 6-inch tail.
