Skinny sari scarf

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (1)
A couple of weeks ago, I knitted nearly a whole scarf at a conference. It's a new bad habit of mine. Eh.

It's a long and skinny scarf made with my new sari yarn. Since I made my necklace, I couldn't wait to try something else with it. I came across the sari knit-along and it seemed to be a nice pattern for that kind of yarn. With such an unequal and fussy yarn, forget about stitch definition. Garter stitch and elongated stitch is the way to go!

sari_scarf.jpgAfter a bit of experimentation with different needle sizes and different number of stitches, I came up with this pattern for a long skinny scarf that uses only one skein of sari yarn :

Using 8 mm needles, CO 6 sts.

Row 1-3 : knit
Row 4 : knit elongated stitches by inserting the right needle in the stitch on the left needle as if to knit, wrapping the yarn 4 times around the right needle and pulling it through the stitch. A good video of how to do this can be found here.

Repeat these 4 rows until you nearly run out of yarn. Stop at row 3 and bind off. You should have enough yarn left to wrap around the palm of your hand about 20 times. Use this leftover yarn to make a fringe.
