Fastest Scarf!

Fastest Scarf!

This is the fastest scarf and it turned out great!  It was a last minute gift for my Aunt Katherine.  I wanted to knit a quick chunky scarf and I thought she might like it 🙂 It is made with extra soft and  luxurious yarn called Debbie Bliss alpaca silk aran 60m/50g the color is claret no. 11. I used 2.5 skeins. Each skein was 71 yds.

Materials: Size US 15 needles.

Pattern:
Cast on 12 stitches.
Knit 8 rows.
On 9th row knit elongated stitches across to end (just wrap yarn around one extra time when knitting) It will appear that there are twice as many stitches.  When knitting the next row, only knit the first stitch and then let the second or double stitch go to form the length of the elongated stitch and keep repeating.  Please see video “Elongated stitch for help”  It is very easy!
Repeat 8 rows of knit and then one row of the elongated knit stitch until scarf is desired length.
Attach tassels.

And your done!

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!  Now that everyone has received their Christmas scarves, I can finally post them up!!!!  My Aunt Katherine is modeling the scarf that I knit for Ashley, my sister, who was too busy playing my cousin’s new Wii, to model for me 😦  Anyway, this is a great scarf to knit as your first patterned scarf.  It is very easy and all you have to do is knit and purl.  This is my favorite yarn so far…. It is made by Araucania and is called Aysen Color 808 70% Merino Wool, 20% Alpaca, 10% Silk.  It is multicolored and delicious!  Click here to view yarn or to buy! 191 yards per skein and I used about 2.
