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.
