This is one of my favorite little knits ... it's a quick knit and while the pattern has been around for a while, I altered this neck scarf by adding a few bobbles here and there ... so cute don't you think?
Here's some new new yarn I found at my local craft store ...
So yummy ... the color, beach glass and the content, 55% bamboo and 45% wool!
Here's what I did. Follow this pattern and when you have 12 stitches on your needle make a bobble (Bobble intructions below) in the next row. Follow the pattern as directed and then in the 7th stitch, make a bobble then continue with the pattern as directed.
Now when you have 24 stitched on your needle make a bobble on the next row. Follow the pattern as directed and then make a bobble at the 8th stitch, knit 9 then make a bobble at stitch 17... then knit to the end as directed.
Continue to knit the scarf as the pattern directs you, and then on your way back to the other end, reverse what you did for the beginning.
Come knit with me! Every Sunday from 1-3 you can find me here, at The Dragonfly Shops and Gardens, teaching beginners to knit, laughing with some not-so-beginners and encouraging others to enjoy the process and rip it out and start over.
Here's how I make a bobble: Knit into the front of the stitch, do not take the stitch offthe needle, now knit into the back of the same stitch, again do not take the stitch off, knit into the front of the stitch, do not take it off and then finally knit into the back of the stitch and take it off the needle. Turn your work and knit those 4 stitches, turn your work and knit 4 stitches, turn and knit 4 stitches.Turn work...you should be on the front now. Knit all 4 stitches off together and continue knitting the pattern!
