Blast Off Scarf to knit

Blast Off with a rocket ship shaped scarf with chevron detailing. The design begins with a few stitches to form a point and grows until it is as wide as you like. Work even until you run out of yarn or add a flare when your yarn ball is getting smaller. I've folded the scarf up a bit in the picture above so you can see both ends.

This design really shows off yarns with long color runs. It is knit in garter stitch and shaped with easy increases and decreases. The more yarn you have the longer your scarf will be. Use any weight of yarn by changing the needle size to suit the yarn. No blocking required!

244 yards of light worsted weight yarn and size 7 knitting needles produced, after washing and laying out flat to dry, a scarf measuring 60” long x 6.5” wide. I used 2 skeins of Classic Elite Liberty Wool for the pictureds scarf. The three page pattern has written instructions and help to figure out how much yarn to save back for the flare and bind off.

Regular price will be $4.00.

Echoing Waves Scarf to knit

Introducing my Echoing Waves Scarf. This chevron shaped scarf starts with a few stitches and uses a stitch pattern that creates textured lines across the face of the scarf. It’s easy to knit with only one purl row out of every 4 rows knitted. Carefully placed increases and decreases give the scarf its shape as it grows. Make it as small or large as you like and use any weight of yarn by choosing a needle size to compliment that yarn. 150-200 yards should give you a nice size scarf and 500-600 for a shawl size. No blocking required. The scarf should be washed and laid out flat to dry on a flat surface to relax the stitches.

The pictured scarf was made with one skein of Tahki Yarns Tandem (107 yards Aran weight) with size 9 (5.5 mm) knitting needles. Finished size after washing and laying it out flat to dry is: 27" along center x 20" along last row. This made a shorter summer scarf. You'll need more yardage for a longer scarf.

The three page pattern sells for $4.00 in my Ravelry pattern store.

Mai Tai Scarf - bet you can't knit just one!

Mai Tai Scarf is a cute, little crescent scarf that knits up fast on big needles using novelty yarn. No short rows! Makes a nice little scarf to dress up a simple top, blouse, or dress. The pattern is super easy to knit and a great one to use for gifts or holiday bazaars. Dig out those single balls of bulky weight novelty yarn hiding in your stash and a pair or size 11 (8 mm) knitting needles, cast on and knit until you only have enough yarn to bind off. A 54 yard skein of Sensations Radiance (a 3 strand yarn of eyelash, railroad, and smooth) made a scarf that is 40” wide x 4” deep. Here's a picture of what it looks like laid out flat.

Price for the two page pattern is $3.00 in my Ravelry pattern store.
