Please note that moments before I snapped this photo, Miss Lucy was stretched out on the scarf. She got bored and wandered off so I took the opportunity to get a cat-free shot. Or two.
I knit this from one 130-gram skein of Kauni Effektgarn in the EQ colorway, using a U.S. size 3 (3.25mm) needle. This is how much yarn I had left over:
I love being able to use almost every last bit of a skein of yarn.
The pattern for this scarf, “Double FunScarf,” is now available for sale in my Ravelry store, and for the remainder of the month of April, you can purchase it for the low low price of $2.00. On May 1 I will hike the pattern price to $3.50.
This scarf is quite easy to knit in garter stitch with short-row ruffles on both sides. While mine was knit with fingering weight wool, you could use any weight up to a light DK weight. (Anything heavier will give you very stiff ruffles!)
Knit as written and lightly steam blocked, this garter stitch scarf measures 8” across and 70” long, but you can make it any width and length you like. The pattern explains how to modify the size. And you can knit the scarf to use up your entire skein of yarn — just knit until you run out.
Fold it in half lengthwise before wrapping around your neck.
You can roll it up in a ball and just look at it.
My new work in progress is not knit from Kauni yarn and is not ruffled. Are you shocked?
Lucy is too busy trying to order catnip online to give it a thought.
