Ok here is the easiest Spring Scarf ever.
Using a variety of any left over wool, ball ends.
Knitted side ways to get a funky stripe.
Use a large number 1 needles These are the ones about as thick as your ring finger. Cast on 100 stitches. Using only knit stitch.
Knit 1-2 rows, cut off thread (as it is used in the fringe)
Change colour – knit 1-2 rows.
Ok here you can change how many rows you want per colour – if you have a thicker thread you might want 1 row and a thinner thread a few rows – whatever you feel like. Just keep cutting off at the end when you change colour as it is a self fringing scarf. Knot the new thread and keep knitting. The when you have a thickness you like – cast off loosely. Then where needed add a few extra strands to make a really groovy fringe.
When you look a few of the pictures of my scarves – they all have 100 stitches – but depending on the type of fibre you knit with they may be stretchy of pull in tighter. So it gives a great multi functional pattern – have a play with it – I am sure you will like this funky stripe.
