MOSS STITCH KNITTED SCARF
© Kemberlee, 2008
This is a really easy and quick knitted project.
Materials used -
- 3 skeins of Noro Silk Garden, colorway 241- the colors of Irish heather...green, purple, fuchsia, brown, blue
- 7mm needles (this yarn calls for 4.5-5mm needles but I used slightly larger for a lighter scarf)
- tapestry needle for weaving in yarn ends
This pattern is done with the Moss Stitch, which is the same as seed stitch.
Cast-on 30 stitches by perferred method (I used the two needle cable cast-on method)
Row 1 - K1, P1 to end, turn
Row 2 - P1, K1 to end, turn
Row 3 to desired length - Repeat rows 1 and 2 to desired length.
Cast-off: Knit the first 2 stitches, use the tip of the left needle to pull the first stitch over the second stitch. This leaves one stitch on the right hand needle. K1 then use the tip of the left needle to pull the first stitch over the new stitch, which leaves one stitch on the right hand needle. K1 and repeat to the end.
There will be one remining stitch on the needle after the last slip stitch. Remove stitch from needle and pull yarn though to knot.
Use tapestry needle to weave in all ends. Weave in ends up the edge of the work, following the path of the yarn and staying within the same color if using a multi-color yarn as I have.
If you want tassles on the ends, save back about half a skein of yarn for this and add at the end of the project.
