Christmas Scarves


Pattern Notes
Suede Garter Stitch Scarf

Yarn: Lion Suede Prints
Color: Mountaintop

Needles: US 8

This scarf is a Christmas gift for a granddaughter of my dad's girlfriend, made in a couple days in November 2006. I started knitting this scarf in seed stitch and realized it wasn't worth the extra effort because it this yarn looks great in garter stitch. It actually looks almost like seed stitch because the bumps are so defined. I am actually thinking of knitting up another one (for myself?). After basic garter stitch (15 stitches across) until I reached the "right" length, I just added 5 sections, 3 strands each, of fringe with my crochet hook.

I added a couple more scarves to my knit gallery. First, Misty Garden from Scarf Style, which I made a while ago, and second, Hearts from Knitty's Breast Cancer Awareness Special Print Issue.
