This is a super easy funky looking scarf. It's not a decorative scarf to wear around all day. It actually has some body to it and keeps you nice and warm in winter due to the wool yarn and has a unique almost halo look about it due to the eyelash / fur type yarn. Be sure to choose two colours that are similar for the best look.
I used Cannes and Brazilia, hence the name. :)
- About 170-180 metres of each of 2 specific types of aran weight yarns - the first should be an all wool or mostly wool smooth or slightly felted yarn, the second an eyelash or fur type yarn in whatever fibre strikes your fancy - I used Cannes in purple and Brazilia in blue.
- Pair of single pointed needles, or a circular, 5.00 or so mm in size (but this is not crucial)
- Cast on 25 sts with both strands held together.
- Knit ever row.
- Stop when you run out of one of the types of yarn.
- Cast off and work in the ends.
- You're done!
- I get lots of compliments when I wear this, people say it's really different (in a nice way!). They mean different from the super fluffy eyelash and fur type scarves out there right now that seem to be a dime a dozen. Everyone wants to touch it look at it close up.
- Use stocking stitch instead if you want your scarf to curl into a tube. It'll also be longer than the garter stitch version above.
- If you love contrast, try using contrast yarns instead. I'd love to know how it works out.
