Man, that’s a lot of knit scarves

January 17, 2012

I think that maybe, just maybe, my scarf/cowl knit craze is starting to wind down. In case you missed any of them, check out recently knit scarves such as the chunky cowl, the simple scrap scarf, and the shimmery cowl. There’s patterns of all of these on my diy page, too! (Is that enough links for you?)

Now that you’re all caught up on scarves of knits’ past, here is the latest addition:

knit blue scarf

That’s right, look at that title pic! I remembered that I have tons of white board from my days as a student, and I should use it to my advantage rather than  have it collect dust in the closet. (plus I fear those sunny fence pictures are gone for the season)

These are actually second generation scarves. I made two others back before Christmas. I even commissioned some fabulous models to pose in them:

purple knit scarf

(but then I took their picture with my phone camera…)

red knit scarf

very nice ladies!

That’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!

        That would be super. I REALLY love the pattern
        I know how to do the cable, but don’t know what stitches you used at the bottom and sides 🙁

          All I did at the bottom and sides was a garter stitch (knit every row). I think I knit 5 rows and then 2 stitches on each side. Hope that helps!!

    I don’t know how knit on round needles I have hard time with them could I make cowl neck scarf on straight needles.

      Hi Maryjean, yes you could definitely make these on straight needles. Cast on a strip about 9″ or 10″ wide and knit until you get to the desired length, cast off and sew the ends together into a loop. Good luck!
