One of the things that I love to do is knit and crochet.
If any of you would come to my craft room,
you will see I have a eight drawer dresser.
In six of the drawers I have it filled with yarn.
Most of the yarn has been given to me
and the rest I have bought.
I had forgotten that I had two skeins of alpaca yarn in my drawer.
With the latest craze of infinity scarves, I decided to make one.
I chose the alpaca yarn. I'm so glad I did because it's nice and soft.
It's a really fast and easy scarf you'll finish in no time.
The stockinette stitch keeps the fabric thin which is the best
to roll it several times around your neck without being uncomfortable.
Using your favorite cast-on, cast-on 30 stitches. Work the pattern as follows:
Row 1: Slip one stitch purlwise, kfb, knit to last 3 stitches, k2tog, knit 1
Row 2: Slip one stitch purlwise, purl to last stitches.
When you have about 30" yarn left on your last skein, or when your scarf is the length you want for the scarf, take your tapestry needle and sew the ends together with the kitchener stitch for an invisible join. That scarf is long enough to be rolled 2, 3 or 4 times around your neck.
kbf= knit into front and back of stitch (increase 1 stitch)
k2tog= knit two stitches together (decrease 1 stitch)
Needles= US 6
Tips= Regularly count the number of stitches onto your needle because it's really easy to forget an increase or decrease.
