Crystal Palace Yarns
free easy knit scarf pattern



85 inches long!

 


 

Below is detail of rich texture
and you need to imagine the
very soft feel that
 POOF gives this scarf.

POOF + Squiggle + Fling Scarf
Uses one ball each of Fling and Squiggle and 2 balls of Poof
knits quickly on size 19 needles

Lots of soft texture and color in this scarf! Poof is a microfiber,
chunky nylon yarn with a very soft hand. Fling is a nylon paper eyelash yarn with metallic fibers highlights. Squiggle is a spaced eyelash with tendrils in a printed red.

Materials:
2-50 gr. balls of POOF (color 3608, lacquer red)
1-50 gr. ball of Fling (color 9538, lacquer red)
1-50 gr. ball of Squiggle (color 9296 , firecracker print)

 1 pr 9" CPY Bamboo, size 19 needle

The scarf is knit in garter st + wrap stitch holding all 3 yarns together throughout. Finished scarf will be approx. 7.5" x 85" long.

To knit scarf :
With 3 yarns held together, loosely cast on 10 sts.
Knit 4 rows.
Wrap stitch:
Row 1: Knit 1, *wrap once around needle, K1*, continue bet *s,  ending with K1.
Row 2: Knit, drop the wrapped sts off needle.
Row 3: Knit
Repeat these 3 rows until just a small amount of yarn left and Knit the last 4 rows.
Cast off loosely.

Note: Besides the red shown, there are many other rich color combinations possible with these three yarns. Try a purple combo, or teals, or greens, or bold black and white.

Note 2: I plan to put a large button about 1/3 from end of this oversize scarf. The wrapped st pattern forms openings that can be used to button the scarf/stole around neck or shoulders.
