So much so that I uses this technique to create 2 different scarves, a cowl, a pair of fingerless mitts, and a hat! LOL!
These are great projects for using up odd skeins of smooth textured worsted weight yarn in almost any fiber. No blocking needed!
You'll need size 8 needles for the scarves and cowl and size 7 for the mitts and hat. The lace edging is knit as you go. The short and long scarves start with just a few stitches, increase and work even. The long scarf then tapers back to a few stitches. I used 2 balls of Patons Bamboo Baby for the long scarf and 1 skein Lion Brand Amazing for the shorter one. The cowl was knit with a single skein of Yarn Bee Diva Sequin.
|Long scarf - 200 yards|
|Short Wrap Scarf - 147 yards|
|Cowl - 200 yards|
|Hat - 125 yards|
|Fingerless mitts - 95 yards|
The hat and mitts both start with a provisional cast on and are grafted at the end. The hat uses no-wrap short rows to form the crown. The mitts use these short rows to form the thumb gusset. The hat is very easy to resize by changing the number of stitches you cast on and the number of "wedges" that you knit. That hat and mitts were knit using 2 skeins of Wisdom Yarns Poems in sweet pea.
