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!
