Fabulous Fushia Scarf
It was in two skeins...approx. 134 yards (5.6 oz) total and made of 3 ply 100% Cotswold handspun wool.
It's not as soft as I hoped it would be....kind of like a scratchy mohair...but it makes up for its scratchiness with its fabulous fuzziness.
This is the pattern I created to make this scarf:
Gauge: 15 stitches to 6 inches....or 5 stitches to 2 inches...or 2.5 stitches per inch....hmmmm...that's right.
Size 9 needle (circular or straights)
Cut 22 12 inch pieces of yarn to use as fringe for the two ends.
CO 15 stitches with both needles held together.
Knit 3 rows.
(*K1, yo...*across the row
Knit across the row, dropping all the yarn overs. Knit 3 more rows.
*K1, yo twice...*across the row.
Knit across, dropping all of the double yarn overs. Knit 3 more rows.
*K1, yo three times...*across the row
Knit across row, dropping all of the triple yarn overs. Knit 3 more rows.)
Repeat the pattern between ( ) until desired length or you almost run out of yarn.
BO the 15 stitches.
Wear and Enjoy!
