This is a thick, warm scarf made for Canadian winters. I used double strands of soft, textured bulky weight yarn.
This was a request by my daughter for a Christmas gift in 2004. She chose the yarn and colours. Great choices to go with her faux suede / shearling coat!
- About 115 metres of each of 2 bulky weight yarns in coordinating colours - I used 4 balls of Paton's Carmen in brown and camel
- Pair of single pointed needles, or a circular, 8.00 mm (needle size is not crucial, so long as the fabric's not too stiff)
- With 2 strands held together (one of each colour), cast on 20 sts.
- Knit every row.
- Stop when you run out of one colour of yarn.
- Cast off, work in the ends and that's it!
- Finished size is about 7.75 inches by 42 inches (20 by 105 cm).
- You don't want to go too big with the needle size, as the scarf fabric will be too open and not as warm.
- Using stocking st instead of garter will give you a longer scarf, but it will tend to curl into a long tube.
- Be sure to rest your hands regularly as working with large needles can be tiring.
