For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, now is the time for the scarf!
Wonderfully warm and fast knits, they are perfect opportunities for almost-instant gratification and are great ways to try out new yarns and new techniques.
This is one of three new scarf designs by Sharon Dreifuss of She-knits --- just lovely!
Here is how she describes Let's Neck:
"Let’s Neck is the second design in the “She-Knits Short and Sweet Series” (the 1st design in this series is Twist and Flounceand the 3rd, Kerfluffle has just been released). Let’s Neck is also one of those super fast instantly satisfying knits.
"Written in both complete text and/or complete charts you choose which format is best for you to work from. There also is a video on Sheknits You Tube Channel showing how to work the slip stitching (see the link below). Knit from the top down and can be finished in one day or even just an afternoon.The wearer can manipulate the i-cord loops in many different ways to create their own unique look."
~ 1 skein (approx 120 yds each 100 grams) bulky weight yarn that achieves gauge
~ 1 set U.S. #10 or circular needle (there is no knitting in the round)
~ 1 Tapestry needle to accommodate bulky yarn
~ 2 #11 dpn’s (used for knitting i-cords)
~ 2 stitch markers
Gauge – approx 16 sts.x 18-20 rows= 4” i pattern stitch blocked on #10 needle or appropriate needle to get gauge. Totally exact gauge is not needed if you are satisfied with the look of your swatch and it compares to main picture on pattern
Length - Blocked from top of finished loops (they have been sewn into place) to bottom of scarf 24”. Width - varies from 3” most narrow ribbed portion t to 7” at bottom bind off (widest point)
Note that what we are offering here is a hard copy of the pattern, seven pages printed out and sent off to you in a sheet protector.
This is a real beauty. So grab some yarn -- be it bulky or worsted or even thinner held double -- and cast on for a beautiful scarf!
