scarf in 225
That one skein of gifted yarn, lovely, alone. I had one of those (I actually have many, but let's focus) in a delicious cranberry color, waiting. It is still summer here in Southern California so a heavy project just would not do. I searched for a pattern, I do not generally wear hats, so I came up with one for an airy scarf.
scarf in 225 (yards of worsted/aran yarn that is).
a link to the ravelry.com page: scarf in 225.
Here is the pattern:
225 yards of worsted or aran weight yarn, I do suppose you could do it with less but it would then be shorter, or you could make it wider or thinner if you choose, simply add or subtract stitches by 2's.
I used size 10 needles.
Cast on 24 stitches, knit 2 rows.
Row 1: slip first st, k1, *yo, k2tog* repeat btwn *'s to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 2: slip first st, k1, purl to last 2 sts, k2.
repeat these 2 rows until you are almost out of yarn, knit 2 rows, bind off.
I added a crochet chain loop of 15 chains and a button on the opposite side of the scarf.
this is optional...of course.
