How to Make a Hand-Knit Scarfcomments (11) September 14th, 2012
Step 4: Drop Stitch and Garter Stitch
Tie on ladder and ribbon yarns. With ladder and ribbon yarns together, drop stitch as described in Step 2. Then, cut only the ladder yarn, and tie on the eyelash yarn. With the eyelash and ribbon yarns together work four rows of garter stitch as described in Step 1.
Step 5: Repeat
Repeat steps 1-5. On the very last section of the scarf, instead of knitting garter stitches for four rows (as described in Step 4), work it for six rows. This will match the six rows of garter stitch you knitted at the very beginning of the scarf.
Step 6: Finish by binding off
To get the scarf off the needles and to secure the ends so that it doesn't unravel, bind off. The long tails might be a bit uneven (which adds to the scarf's charm), but if you want a neater look, give them a little haircut.
