I love a knitting project that I can work on while I'm watching tv, or that I can pick up or put down without having to find my place in the pattern. This pattern is perfect for those occasions. It takes me only a couple of evenings to knit up, and there's really no need to create a swatch or block the finished piece (unless you REALLY want to, but I've never met a knitter who enjoyed either of those activities.
To get started, you'll need the following materials:
(This list contains affiliate links)
- 2 skeins Bulky weight yarn (I used Patons Classic Woold Roving, shown below)
- 1 Set of US 15 Knitting Needles
- 1 Darning Needle
Now for the pattern...
- Cast on 38 stitches.
- Knit all rows until the first skein runs out. Switch to the second skein.
- Knit all rows until the piece measures 32" (Or longer if you want the scarf to hang a little lower), making sure to leave a a couple of yards of yarn at the end.
- Cast off.
- Using the yarn needle, sew in the ends of string where you switched from skein to the other.
- Lastly, sew the two shorter ends (your cast on and cast off rows) of the finished rectangle together to form a cowl.
And your done! (If you have never switched skeins of yarn, or sewn in ends, you can find some great instructions here.)
Winter has been mild here in Texas, but I hope to still have a few chilly days to wear my favorite scarves! How has winter been where you live?
