Pizzazz Scarf to Knit

Pizzazz Scarf is a quick and easy scarf to knit. Constructed sideways in garter stitch, it curves and has just a bit of pizzazz along the edge from elongated stitches. The short scarf pictured at right was knit with one skein (99 yards) of Plymouth Boku on size 8 (5 mm) knitting needles.

This is a great stash buster project! Grab any smooth textured worsted weight skein of yarn that have at least 100 yards and cast on!

Block it or not, it's totally up to you. I did block this one to open up the lacy edge. Unblocked it was 21" along the top edge x 27" along the bottom edge x 9" deep. Blocked it measures 30" x 39" x 11".

I did a second larger version that continues the lacy edge up the side. This is more like a shawlette than a scarf. I made it with about 350 yards of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Twisted in the waterlilies colorway. Unblocked it measures 44" x 45" x 16".

Go stash diving an see what you come up with. You can make this scarf in other weights of yarn by changing the needle size to one recommended by the yarn label or one size larger. Remember, yarn requirements will change if you use a different weight of yarn.
