3. So hey...

how about an easy scarf to go along with your hat?

A friend of mine gave me a pattern for something called a "potato chip" scarf. It's ruffly and very pretty.

I'm doing mine on a loom, but it's actually made for needles...

All knitting stitches

****

Cast on 20 stitches and then knit across to the other end.


Row 1: Knit 8, turn

Row 2: Knit 8, turn

Row 3: Knit 6, turn

Row 4: Knit 6, turn

Row 5: Knit 4, turn

Row 6: Knit 4, turn

Row 7: Knit 20

Follow rows 1 - 7 until scarf is as long as you want. What will happen is that you're making what's called "short rows" by knitting 8, 6, and 4 stitches respectively, on each side. These short rows, when long enough, will start to form a "ruffle".

When scarf is long enough, end on row 7 and bind off.

I would recommend using a size 8 - 11 needle and medium weight knitting worsted.




PS...this is what it would look like...
