Slubby Blue

After I used this yarn to make the Churchmouse wreath, I wanted to try it for scarves. For the first one (below), I knit it exactly as I did for the wreath, as follows:
C/O 9 sts
Row 1 – purl
Row 2 – Knit into stitch – before pulling it off the left needle, bring yarn forward between needles, loop yarn around pinky or fourth finger of left hand, then bring yarn back between the needles, and knit into back of same stitch – you now have 2 stitches on the right needle – bind off first stich over second stitch.

I used 2 skeins of Fleece Artist Slubby Blue in color Orchid, and knit with yarn doubled on US 15s. The scarf isn’t long enough to tie at the neck (and you wouldn’t want to, it’s so bulky), but it’s perfect if held crossed over at the neck with a pin.

I used 2 skeins of the same yarn (color Blomidon) for the next scarf, but with a different technique. Instead of knitting the yarn doubled, I knit single-strand on US 13s – I cast on 18 sts and knit in a simple K2 P2 rib. I used 1 1/2 skeins and had plenty left over to fringe – I still had some of the second skein left over, and usually I try to use the yarn all up (to avoid adding to my yarn stash!) but this scarf was plenty long, so I thought I’d better stop.
