This picture isn’t very good, sorry – the only one I had and I already gave it away! but lots of fun yarns made this one so gorgeous!

Most knitted scarves are 5-9 inches wide and you’re constantly turning your work as it gets longer & tangles.  To make it easier, I created a scarf knitted sideways on a circular needle.

Starting with leftover yarn of various textures & weights, I began  garter stitch knitting on a large circular needle (#10-13) until the piece was my desired length.  There’s no specific guide as to how long or how much yarn you may use and most simple stitches make it quick & easy.

Using bulky weight yarn, different eyelash yarns, miscellaneous worsted weights, and sometimes knitting two yarns together to create texture, I continued knitting rows until reaching my desired width. Then I did the usual bind off & wove in yarn ends.

Here is another fast and fun scarf with a super soft light teal yarn, with some confetti yarn mixed in for spot of color!

These scarves are fun to create and work up quickly. I made several as gifts for family & friends at Christmas.  Several people asked me to make up scarves in specific color palettes to match their jackets or coats.  Just for enjoyment, I gave names to many of the color designs.  Some examples were Ocean Snowflakes, Ebony Sparkles, Grape Frost and Copper Penny which I’ve shown here.

Here is a closeup to show the mix of yarns in this fast and fun scarf!
