Fall is almost here and I just finished my scarf that I started LAST YEAR! Why did it take me so long to finish it? I have no idea. A little bit here, a tiny tad there. I never had a project that took me this long and it has to be the easiest pattern EVER.
It feels so warm and soft and I'm in love with the color I chose!
It's just basic garter stitch except I used a big knitting needle every few rows.
Supplies: Homespun yarn (Mediterranean)
One pair of U.S. size 11 needles and one size 50 needle
C.O. 20 sts onto the 11's and knit 8 rows then switch to the size 50 for one row then back to the 11 and repeat until you reach your desired length.
I know you can get the same effect with Y.O/drop but when I started this I just reeeeeally wanted to use the big needle! :)
If you would rather do it the other way here is a helpful video I found.
In the end this scarf will be seven inches wide and mine is 90 inches long, without the fringe, if you want to go longer you will need a second skein of yarn, mine took only one with just enough for fringe.
If you chose to add fringe you will need to put a knot in the ends or over time the yarn will unravel, as shown above.
