Another Loose End Woven

January 16, 2008


This project was something I promised to make for a preacher friend of mine as soon as I finished with my holiday knitting. I am making good on that promise tonight. I must say that after the rash of hunting gloves, hats and scarves I have knitted lately, I have developed an intense dislike for all things camo.

The pattern is my own but since I am in a generous mood today, I will share it with you. The ribbing makes a thick, cozy, non-curling scarf that is narrow enough to wrap around your neck without strangling you but stretchy enough to pull up over your face when you need added warmth. I highly encourage you to substitute another yarn preferably one that isn’t camo. Here it is, my first written out knitting pattern.


Easy Hunting Scarf

Supplies:

  • Approximately 350 yards hideously ugly your favorite camouflage color worsted weight yarn. I used acrylic because I couldn’t find a wool in camo color.
  • Size 8 (5.0mm) needles
  • Tapestry needle
  • Lots of patience

Finished dimensions: Approximately 51/2 X 67 inches

Gauge: Not critical. Mine came out about 7 stitches per inch but since this is ribbing you are really only seeing about 3.5 stitches per inch (the purl stitches hide)

Cast on 40 stitches using your favorite cast on method. I used the Long Tail method.
Row 1: Knit 1X1 ribbing (K1 P1)to end of row ending with K1
Row 2: Slip the first stitch purlwise with yarn in back. (P1 K1) to end of row ending with P1.
Repeat Row 2 until you are so sick of camo that you are about to barf or until you have reached the desired length whichever comes first.
Bind off using favorite method. I used EZ’s sewn bind off because I don’t have to worry about binding off too tightly.
Weave ends and present to your favorite hunter.

I might add a downloadable version of this later if anyone thinks that they really need one. This pattern is nearly easy enough to knit in your sleep.
