Have a Yarn

June 2011 - Easy, Breezy Scarf

Scarves are made to be worn throughout the year and are very fashionable today. Here's a great little scarf that you can knit up in just a couple evenings. Quick, simple and easy, this scarf can be made for any season depending on the weight of yarn you choose. I have chosen Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool, a blend of wool, silk and nylon, a nice lightweight yarn for the summer. A DK or worsted weight would be ideal for the winter. With this pattern you will want to use needles at least one size larger than the recommended size for the yarn that you have chosen, I used a 5mm. If you are adding a fringe, I suggest you take the time to cut the fringes first so you won't run short at the end. The diagonal ends will form automatically once you have several inches knit.

Material: 100gm.

Size: 5 1/2" wide, 5' long. without fringe

Fringes: 84 pieces, 10" long

CO 31sts.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: K2, *yo, K2tog* across row. Knit the last st.
Repeat these 2 rows until you have your desired length.
Add your precut fringes to the ends of your scarf in sets of 3.
Trim the ends evenly and enjoy.

This pattern is a spin-off of the Montego Bay scarf and has been modified to a simpler format. - Karen Simmons
