My girlfriend stopped by a knitting shop the other day and within a few minutes, learned how to knit a gorgeous scarf. I went to visit her and she showed me just how easy it is. I stopped by the store after work tonight to get my own yarn and while watching a couple of episodes of Breaking Bad, I created a beautiful scarf.
Pssst, don’t tell my model (my daughter) that she is in the photo, she didn’t want her photo taken :)
It takes on 6 stitches cast on and away you go. If I can do it, anyone can. I haven’t picked up a pair of knitting needles in over 30 years. And, it only takes on ball of this special yarn (it’s like ribbon)
I started making another one in black, white and grey. It can also by crocheted together.
The secret to it’s fullness and ruffles is the yarn spreads apart to look like it’s crocheted and you only pick up a stitch every 2nd stitch.
Here is another colour that I will work on this weekend.
The instructions are online too.
Beautiful Junk Saturday #3 is in full swing, so sashay on over and share your thrifty decor and finds.
