Purl Chicks


Simple pattern scarf!

Simple pattern scarf!

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.

Needles: Size 9

Cast on 18 stitches (or any number of even stitches for desired width)

Pattern:

Row 1: (k1, p1)  repeat to end.
Row 2: (k2, p2) repeat to end.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until desired length.
Attach tassels!  Click here for help with tassels (Tassel part is at the end of the video!)

Thanks girls for last night!  Good food, good nog, and mentally challenged husbands/ boyfriends.  I am too embarassed to post Simon wearing the blue sweater with tennis balls as boobs.  So here is our first post… I am getting things started with the first scarf that I have ever completed and it was instantly stolen off of my needles by my husband, Simon, who won’t wear it “without tassles.” (unless it is wrapped on his head like a turban.)  Anyway, thank you Rob for modeling the scarf the way it was meant to be worn 🙂
