(UPDATE) I will be selling this scarf on my INSTAGRAM so be on the lookout; I will update here when I will be accepting pre-orders by email.
I really appreciate all the lovely comments and emails I’ve received!
I have always wanted to start knitting but always thought it was so confusing and very time consuming. A couple of months ago I watched some videos on Youtube to learn how to knit. After a few tries and watching the videos over and over, I finally got the hang of it but still not quite yet. The knitting pattern terminology still confuses me.
It’s still very hot here in Southern Cali but the nights are starting cool down. I’m really tired of this hot weather! So, I created this simple, chunky scarf with a knitted bow for my little Aries. It’s perfect for winter and it will protect her neck and chest from the cold weather.
Now we wait for the cooler weather!
Now if you want to make this scarf yourself: I used chunky yarn & 13 size straight needles.
Pattern for scarf: 13 stitches and about 25 inches long; GARTER STITCH only. Start doing the button hole at about 21.5 inches in length and about 4.5 inches from the end. Cast off at the 6th garter stitch and only casting off 3 stitches. I used this very helpful video to cast off the button hole.
Pattern for bow: 10 1/2 straight needles and normal/med size yarn. Pattern: 16 stitches and about 6 1/2 inches long. Once done knitting, simply grab some yarn and wrap around the middle to form the bow. I secured the bow to the scarf with needle and thread. Then I simply used the bow as the “button” to hold the scarf. You simply grab the bow from the button hole and that’s it.
I’m no expert at all and learned all by myself. I found knitting very relaxing and I can’t wait to knit more items like hats and cowls! Knitting for me has turned into taking a break from the computer, sitting and watching a movie or show with my little Aries.Do you knit? To learn to knit I suggest watching videos on Youtube. Starting with chunky yarn makes it so much easier and it’s way faster than knitting with thin yarn. If you have any questions, I will be happy to help.
