This may be one of my favorite knitted creations so far for several reasons. But I really love it mostly because it is so warm, it’s super soft, and it’s very versatile.
In fact, you can wear it at least three different ways:
What I love most is the functionality. It’s easy to just throw on and go, and it matches almost everything. I plan on making a lot more of these to get through the rest of winter.
You Can Do It Too:
For the yarn, I used Lion Brand-Homespun Thick&Quick.
With size 13US needles, cast on 30 stitches.
All I did was a basic knit stitch, although you can really do whatever stitch you’d like.
Just keep knitting….you want to make sure it is long enough to wrap around, and pull up over your head.
Once you reach the length you want, simply cast off, and sew the ends together using a yarn needle.
It’s that easy!
To answer some frequently asked questions about this project:
- This scarf takes only one skein of the Lion Brand Homespun Thick&Quick yarn. If there are smaller skeins AND larger skeins available, get the largest one.
- Once completed, my scarf measured to be about 38 inches long (after sewing it together), and about 26 inches wide.
- It may appear that there isn’t really a pattern, but that’s only because this project is so easy! Just follow the directions above which tells you how many stitches to cast on, what size needles, what type of yarn, and then you seriously just do a basic garter stitch through the entire thing. Lastly, just sew it together once you’re finished!
