Yesterday, I mentioned the easy scarf I whipped up on a whim – something for ME (for once). In fact, I knit this while watching the Super Bowl a couple of months ago, while the Seahawks and Pats battled it out. I used the the hot (seriously, even hotter than Katy Perry’s performance) Super Bulky by Freia Fine Handpaints. Here’s how you can knit one of your own!
Size US 19 (15mm) needles, 1 skein of Super Bulky by Freia Fine Handpaints, and a tapestry needle. You might prefer to use a cable needle, also, to work the cable stitch.
Size & Gauge Info
The scarf measures 5 inches by 57 inches, so I had a gauge of approximately 11.25 sts per 4 inches. Gauge isn’t critical here, but do note that even a tiny change in gauge WILL result in changes to how much or how little yarn you use.
3/3 LC: Slip 3 stitches to cable needle and hold to front, k3; k3 from cable needle.
3/3 RC: Slip 3 stitches to cable needle and hold to back, k3; k3 from cable needle.
Cast on 13 sts.
Row 1 (WS): K2, p9, k2.
Row 2 (RS): K1, p1, k9, p1, k1.
Row 3: Same as Row 1.
Row 4: K1, p1, k3, 3/3 RC, p1, k1.
Row 5 – 7: Work as Rows 1 – 3.
Row 8: K1, p1, 3/3 LC, k3, p1, k1.
Repeat Rows 1 – 8 until you have reached your desired length! And voila! A scarf for those cold theaters, overly air-conditioned restaurants, and fast thunderstorms!
